Cafe Church this Sunday

Seeing as we are in Advent and Christmas is coming we will be making christingles this month cafe service to help remember the message of hope Christmas brings. If you don’t know what a christingle is then don’t worry there are probably plenty of other people who don’t know either. But we promise you will find out on Sunday and really enjoy making them out of an orange, a candle, some ribbon and some sweets!

As well as the Christingles there we will be the usual bits of singing some songs, chatting together and thinking about faith. And of course fresh coffee, pastries and papers are ready  from 10am
The service starts itself at 10.30 and we look forward to seeing you if you can make it.

We’ve had a few sunny days and we’re all starting to dig out the sun hats and slap on the factor 30! Here’s a Café Service to think about holidays and rest.








Café Church Takeaway is a resource for Churches or groups who would like to have a go at running a Café service.

Seeing Jesus

I know it’s a bit too big, but it means you can see it better!

The usual envelopes on the cafe church tables delivered a handful of different pictures of Jesus to have a look at and discuss this morning. This one caught my eye. I’ll confess, if there was going to be a Pre-Raphaelite picture among them, that would be the one I headed for. I love the Pre-Raphaelites and this picture by Ford Madox Brown is a favourite. Historically they are probably all a bit to white and western to be authentic, but there is something about it which seems so real and rugged, even with Jesus’ halo.

It was interesting to see the different depictions. Revolutionary Jesus anyone? Looking at all the different pictures and all the different people talking about them round tables, I suspect this is a topic that has plenty of mileage!

Our first cafe service of 2012 is this Sunday and will be a regular fixture every third Sunday of the month for the rest of the year.

Fresh tea and coffee, pastries (and fruit if you are feeling healthy) are served from 10am. The service starts at 10.30am and all takes place around tables. There is space to talk with others, join in the activities, reflect quietly on your own, sing a song if you like or just read the newspaper and catch up on the weeks stories.  Just come along and be yourself.

Hope to see you
