cafe on the green
Our Community Cafe is open from 10.30am to 1.30pm Monday to Friday.
We also hold coffee mornings most Saturdays and after every morning Sunday Service.
The café was an essential part of our refurbishment plan and was always intended to be a place of comfort and peace and is located in the original church building of this site. The several areas of settees and chairs to match, set around coffee tables with their magazines, provide the comfort as they surround the tabled area of the main café. Special acoustic panels set in the ceiling form part of the fine bright decoration and plenty of modern lighting and quiet music provides the atmosphere.
We have one paid café manager overall responsible to ensure that hygiene is maintained, and there are a group of volunteers to provide daily support and this includes ones whose job is to welcome and listen to any of our visitors who want to talk to them, the main church is also open for anyone who wishes to sit and reflect or pray.
Although there are other cafes in the area there is really no competition in either direction as they serve a different type of menu and do not have the comfort or décor of ours. In addition the visitors to our café can stay as long as they wish during opening hours, which are from 10.30am to 1.30pm, which is a big help to a community of people with learning difficulties in a large house opposite to us and also those visiting a clinic at the rear of the house.
