Upcoming services and groups

All Night Café

We hope to run a All Night Café, inspired by the All Night Café in Camberley. Guests receive a hot meal and place to sleep for the night. We hope to run this a number of nights a week and will need a number of volunteers to get this going.

We are currently looking for volunteers for the All Night Café. If you’d like to know more, please contact us by email.

Pre-Owned Shop

The shop will be offing pre-owned household goods, adult and children’s clothing and household items to those in need. Pre-owned school uniforms will also be on offer to families in need. We will be operating on a ‘pay what you can afford’ basis. Pay what you can afford, if you can’t afford it then it’s free!
