Birtley St Joseph's CMS Club and Parish Centre (Birtley Catholic Club) is a social club. We are committed to providing  a welcoming, comfortable and safe environment for members and their guests to enjoy social activities. Membership is open to everyone if 18 years or older and committed to the purpose and objects of the club. There are no restrictions to membership on the basis of gender, religion or ethnicity.  While the club's origins and current management structure are closely aligned with St Joseph's Catholic Church our facilities are available to the wider community to use both as members and hirers of rooms. We are particularly keen to support local community groups, charities and other good causes and may offer facilities free of charge where appropriate.

We are in Birtley Lane, close to the junction with Durham Road and just opposite the Catholic Church.
