Stories from St Stephens…

Picture of cafe volunteerVolunteers say;”It’s a great place to belong to help others and the manager is very good at letting people work when they can and do the tasks that suit them best. Some people like to serve others like to wash up. There is a need for both as well as occasional cooks and people who like to clean up at the end of the day!” 

The Cafe manager says “The cafe finds itself situated in a beautiful church. It is a place where people can come for refreshments 7 days a week! Monday to Saturday in the cafe and on a Sunday for church. We provide a warm welcome and aim to get to know all our regulars. I love how some of our team have journeyed alongside customers, to see prayerful support and kindness within our cafe community. 

The cafe has an amazing team of volunteers, who provide a friendly and enthusiastic service. It is a great place for volunteers to use their gifts, share their compassion and meet new people. Some volunteers have discovered more of who they are, experiencing great personal growth and have confidently moved into new things after being with us. 

As cafe manager, I have been completely blessed and blown away by God’s constant provision for our needs. He often meets our needs in the form of people he sends to us. He continues to show me the huge love He has for each one who comes to us.”

Picture of Saturday cafe manager  SimonCustomers say; “Its cheap! It’s a great place to meet friends and family. It’s a great place when you are lonely and might not speak to another person that day. It’s warm. It’s friendly. It feeds the poor and that was me once. I would have appreciated something like this so much. It’s a nice alternative to the commercial places. The atmosphere is peaceful.”

Another costumer said “We have been coming here a long time, it looks amazing. We come in 2 or 3 times a week. It’s a great place to meet people. Good prices it’s cheaper then most places. We can’t find a fault in the drinks. It’s great that they have toilets.”

Revelation 3:20

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
