The building remains in Methodist Church Circuit ownership and a joint project, with the Boys’ Brigade doing day-to-day management, the six8nine now provides a community venue for organisations and groups who primarily have a young people, or health related focus. there is a vision and a plan for the future of the building with an extension and new carparking on the drawing board.
There is a vision and a plan for the future of the building, everyone is looking forward to seeing the project grow into a wonderful thriving hub for goodness, health and community use. The boys brigade leaders are pioneering this work and have high hopes for the success of the project.
The first building to be erected on the site at Westbourne was a Tin Chapel in 1885. This was used for worship and service until it was badly damage during the Second world war (1939 – 1945) The school rooms where built in 1906 next to the Chapel.
The 8th Hartlepool Boys Brigade, who had called Westbourne home for 87 years. They started using the schoolrooms in 1936
After the Chapel was damaged during the war, Sunday worship and services continued in the schoolrooms, This was refurbished as a worship centre which was re-dedicated in may 2000. The tin Chapel was demolished in 1999 and the land where the Chapel stood is still green belt today (2023).
The schoolrooms became too big for use as a worship centre, The congregation of Westbourne parted and moved to other Churches for worship, the building stopped being used for worship in 2020.
The building is now a Methodist community hub in partnership with Hartlepool boys Brigade.
Change everything and here at the Six8Nine community hub we are allowed to hold ceremonies.
our premises are no longer running worship services but we are still part of the Methodist Church.
There is a Pioneer Chaplain Tony who is at the six8nine in Hartlepool
