More Than Just a Place to Work.

A unique and uplifting working space in a historic Portsmouth church.

Working alone doesn’t have to be lonely working. We want to help combat isolation and foster new businesses in a positive evironment.

By providing a utilisable space, a dynamic community and access to expert advice and support, we hope to resource and support professionals to succeed.

We’ve combined mid-century retro design with upcycled and bespoke furniture repurposed from the original pews to create our alternative to independent working.

Come see for yourself.

Our next event

There are no upcoming events at this time

What is in the space?

Large collaboration tables, comfy seating areas, coffee bar (with free tea & coffee) free WiFi, fridge access, inside a working church. P.S we do have heating and extra blankets.

Is it still a church?

Yes! We are inside a working church with a place to pray, sit and soak or just to take a minute; to refresh and focus yourself on what matters.

The users belonging to St Luke’s stop and pray at 8:30am, 1pm and 4pm for 15 minutes or so. Feel free to join in at any point, and don’t be afraid to make noise during this time.

This space is for you, as much as it is for anyone else. Make yourself at home, get comfortable and help yourself to tea and coffee.
