September 2020 

Last time we used this banner it was when we were about to embark on a journey
of trusting and following what we believed God was leading us to do as a church.
Our overgrown, prickly hedges were replaced with a community garden and outdoor space.
We believe we have been given a vision to turn the back hall into a permanent, regular Café available for our community.
We are looking to explore the possibility of employing 2 workers, someone in the kitchen,
and a lay worker to work with the visitors, helping with sign posting to advice,
witnessing our faith.
The vision includes current church groups returning in the future to the Café as their base
eg Toybox, Friendship Club, Knit and Natter, Friday Café.
We aim to work with outside agencies to meet the needs of our community
eg mental health professionals, drug awareness,
as well as evangelical initiatives from the café.
We are currently exploring outside funding, and putting together a business plan.
We are excited at these possibilities, and continue to pray for Gods guidance as we look at our options.
