Frodsham Cafe Church

Frodsham Cafe Church posterOn Wednesday we embarked on a new venture in Frodsham. We started Frodsham Cafe Church - to be held in Costa Coffee each Wednesday evening from 6pm till 7pm. Costa in Frodsham are open on Wednesdays till 7pm, so we are sharing the premises with the occasional punters they get in at that hour of the day - we have the back half of the shop!

There is always excitement and apprehension at the start of anything new, but the evening went extremely well - plenty of people, plenty of laughter, plenty of good coffee and plenty of warm friendship.

We have a set of values:

Welcome -
Everyone is welcome - whether you have any experience of church or not
Warmth -
Warm drinks, warm atmosphere, warm friendship
Words -
God has good words to say about how to live - real conversations about real issues in real life

.. and each week we will have Cafe News on the tables to (hopefully) provoke some thought.

The thought for this week was summed up in the "Cafe Qs":

- How can we meet people today on their own territory?
- Can we be ‘church’ in Costa Coffee?
- What, exactly, is church?

Have you any thoughts on these?

    Sounds fascinating Kath and glad it went well - you are right that you need to meet people on their own territory, we are all so busy and perhaps selfish that we almost expect things to come to us rather than have to go searching - this gives people an opportunity to be part of something wonderful, on a plate with a cup of coffee as well! Good luck. Jayne x
