Refreshed is open – well nearly!

Refreshed, our charity shop and cafe will be open next week with revised opening hours:

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday’s from 11am to 3pm.

Refreshed has always been a place where members of our community can come in for a cuppa, hot meal or simply to browse the shelves and clothes racks in our charity shop. Now that we’re (nearly) back open we are also here for so much more than that. Visitors will still be able to do all of those things, but we are also re-emphasising that we are a church whose primary focus is ‘to talk, walk and share Jesus, inviting others to meet Jesus and live the Jesus way‘.

We want to be a touch point, a place where people can come to find out more about our christian faith, prayer, worship, the church or God. As such there will be someone on hand during opening hours whether that is to talk, listen, pray or simply just be friendly.

We look forward to seeing you…
