Chichester District Council has agreed to contribute more than £200,000 towards the extension and conversion of Graylingwell Chapel.
Lib Dem councillor Richard Plowman said the decision was "very overdue".
He said: “I think it’s been about four years where the community has not had a facility."
Chichester Community Development Trust, which cares for the chapel, plans to convert the chapel into a community space celebrating the area along association with mental health care.
It will include a memory cafe suitable for people with dementia, as well as being home to meeting space, exhibitions, performances and cinema showings.

Councillors charged with scrutinising children’s services in West Sussex have questioned the level of information provided to them.
The service was rated inadequate by Ofsted last week and the council will now work with a commissioner from the Department for Education in an effort to bring things up to scratch.
Scrutiny came in for criticism from the inspectors, who described the process as not "sufficiently rigorous".
At a meeting councillors said they were determined to see children's services improve and made a number of suggestions.
Councillors were told that seven core themes for improvement had been decided – effective leadership, work force, planning and development, learning and development, design of the service, and partnerships, process and compliance.
The South East will go to the polls on 23 May to elect 10 MEPs.

A Dorset project to help victims of domestic abuse is to be extended.
The Dragonfly project uses the symbol of a dragonfly to show people in an abusive situation where they can find confidential support and advice.
The project trains people to become champions within communities. They're able to receive and respond to disclosures of domestic violence and abuse.
Funding has now been secured to continue the Dragonfly project in Dorset and to extend it to Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and West Sussex.

The leader of Chichester District Council has announced he is standing down.
Tony Dignum, who was re-elected as a Conservative member for Chichester North on Friday, has been a cabinet member for seven years and leader for four.
The elections saw the Tories lose their overall majority of the council, holding 18 of the 36 seats – a result which helped prompt Mr Dignum’s decision.
He said: “Leading the council with no overall control requires a new approach best delivered by someone else.
"I am older than other colleagues, so it is probably a good time to reduce my workload.”

"Highly explosive" ordnance has been found on a beach in West Sussex and taken away for disposal.
Selsey Coastguard said it was paged at 07:20 BST to a report of objects on the beach at Medmerry.
After a search located the items, they were taken away by Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD).
The coastguard said during the war, Selsey had a bombing range for air to ground target practice. Flooding and erosion since has led to ordnance being washed up.
The Coastguard said: "This, and previous ordnance found on this beach, has been found to be highly explosive, so please do not touch it. Dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard straight away."
