Cafe Church

We decided to experiment with a new service format this month. Called “Cafe
Church”, it was held in one of our village halls and was much less formal
than our usual services. We shared coffee and cakes, before singing some
popular hymns that had been chosen by the congregation. We heard about the
“Open the Book” initiative and the funds that had been raised in our recent
Giving in Grace campaign. It was a real success – 36 people attended and it
had a great atmosphere. We had originally planned only two services, but it
was such a success that we are already planning more than that, and it may
become a regular event.
