About the Coffee Shop

This fantastic community facility that started with a flask and an empty room, continues to be an oasis for busy villagers, a warm welcome for those who come to ballet, a creative space for art and craft ideas and a test audience for local entrepreneurs’ new business ideas.

We still rely on volunteers, but we are now in a purpose built coffee shop. If you are interested in joining the team, either with a regular slot or to join our ‘reserves’ please contact Margriet Wells via the Church Office.

What’s on offer?

Knit and Natter in coffee shop

We serve fresh fairtrade Columbian coffee, tea and hot chocolate with a choice of snacks.

We sell all sorts of gifts including a good selection of:

Locally made jams and marmalade
Cards including handmade and hand painted and some by local artists.

One of our regular knitters at Knit and Natter that meet every Tuesday, makes children’s cardigans and jumpers and they are for sale in the coffee shop – prices start at £4 and make a perfect gift.

During the week…

We have a small area for toddlers to play.   So if you need an oasis in your busy day or a friendly face please drop in, there is always a listening ear.

The Knit, Sew & Natter group meet every Tuesday from 10 -12 in the coffee shop.  If you’ve ever fancied trying your hand or have a project that needs an expert, why not drop in?  They would be happy to help.  No need to bring any materials – a starter pack for either crochet or knitting can be supplied.

The Wednesday Communion congregation meet in the Coffee Shop after the service in the Chapel at 10.30am.

Need a chat? The Friday Coffee Group meet from 10-12 for a good yarn over a cuppa.

Painting Classes use the coffee shop every Monday in term time 1-3pm. More info at

Coffee shop from door

We collect small/travel size toiletries to make up bags for the homeless.  If anyone has airline goodies, toothbrushes or sample sizes of toothpaste, shampoo, bodywash, soap, flannels etc, they can be left in The Coffee Shop and assured of a good home.

At the end of each financial year the Coffee Shop now donates 20% of its profit to Deserving Children Africa (DCA). We are sponsoring a child through school and receive regular updates about her progress.
