Café Hub Update 

Having had a long public consultation period, our plans have finally been approved by the Chancellor and we are busy applying for grants to raise over £200K needed. We now have over 20 local volunteers on our committee, with expertise ranging from architecture and heritage projects to performance, nutrition and café management.

Our vision is to create a hub based on the 7 monastic spaces historically provided in places of community: cell (a place for private prayer), chapel (corporate prayer and worship), chapter (a place for meetings), cloister (an opportunity to meet friend and stranger), garden ( a place to nurture the environment responsibly, growing food to eat but also respectfully maintaining the churchyard), refectory (a place to eat and drink) and scriptorium ( a place of study, exploration and shared learning).
 
The church will be open daily for individuals to pray or just find a restorative space. Worship will continue as before at Little Bealings Church, with communion services twice a month and Messy Church monthly. The café will provide a place to meet with light refreshments throughout the week and a flexible space, which can be used by groups including the school next door and other formal and informal groups for study, art, music and therapeutic activities.  We will also look at how we can utilise and care for the outside space and its environment, including outside seating, parking, and planting.

If you feel called to assist in our project in any way do please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
