A local community hub

We specifically focus our ministry and community work on the relief of poverty, food deprivation, and social isolation, signposting to specialist agencies and providing facilities for a range of community groups. We value inclusion, justice, sustainability, learning, seeing lives transformed, human dignity and wellbeing.

Food and Clothes Pantry

Our Food Pantry and Clothes Pantry and free pop-up community Café are usually open 3 days a week. We partner with Fare Share to offer a friendly local Food Pantry that provides low-cost nutritional food that seeks to support people's financial budgets and helps to improve healthy eating options at an affordable price.

Pop-up Community Café

Our Café space serves free hot drinks and snacks whilst enabling people to build relationships and informal networks in a safe, warm environment. We are still growing and developing our little café and hope to develop a child-friendly Café space over the coming months.

See below for opening times for these groups and more, along with information about room rentals for community groups or events.
