The Café is a way in which St Stephen’s Church cares for the community that God has placed us in. The Café is an open and welcoming place where anyone can come to buy a meal or a drink, no matter their circumstances. We believe in the principle of ‘eat, drink, share, pay what you know is fair’ and therefore refreshments are available for a minimum of £1.
The Café is a place of welcome, refreshment and peace for volunteers and customers alike.
The Café exists to hold people alongside each other
Rev. Canon Madeline Light
The Church has a heart to reach out and welcome people into the community
The Café is here for all, offering a different atmosphere and environment to commercial ventures; a peaceful place to come by yourself or with friends and family.
We are here to serve the city in many different ways, including providing a place for over 50 volunteers to be valued. Without our volunteers this Café would not function.
We operate a pay a pound system for those struggling to pay. We will, of course, always be grateful to receive donations from anyone wishing to support the work of St Stephen’s in this way.
The food is all homemade or made on the premises. The coffee and tea are good quality and Fairtrade.
