The coffee shop in our church foyer was established as part of the redevelopment of the church building in 2009. It is focused on mission and serving the people in our local community and beyond. It is mostly staffed by volunteers offering freshly baked cakes and biscuits, with a range of fairtrade coffees and teas available. We have found it is a natural point of entry for those on the ‘fringe’ of church life and others ‘passing by’. The foyer space has also given us a great venue for various events to take place in – from pop-up toddler craft sessions, to open mic nights and choral concerts.
