Organiser of Our Shared Heritage Talk with Hakim Adi

Grand Junction is a new venue for community, arts and culture based at St Mary Magdalene Church, run by Paddington Development Trust. We offer a bustling programme of activities for young people, families, and adults, as well as a café serving delicious food and drinks.

Over the past 24 months the church has been lovingly restored, and we have a beautiful new building designed by Dow Jones Architects.
