About Zion Community Space
Zion is a community hub in Bedminster Down, South Bristol where everyone is welcome. We provide a warm safe space for community groups to run, our cafe is open during the week, and we put on an array of affordable events. It was founded as a social enterprise in 2011 and transitioned to a Community Benefit Society in 2022. As of May 2023, Zion became community-owned by 380 community shareholders and is run on their behalf by the Board of Directors.
We are looking to co-opt up to three voluntary Directors with skills in finance, accounting, HR, business strategy and/or the hospitality industry on a temporary basis until the Annual General Meeting (AGM), which will be held in September 2024. There’s the possibility of co-option extension from September 2024.
