Café Church is an initiative of St Mary’s Parish Church to welcome everyone to enjoy an evening of coffee, cake, live music and chat.  Each week there will be a theme, we will watch a video and this will be followed by discussion in small groups.

The discussion is guided by questions about how the theme affects our lives and how the bible can help us to understand the difficult topics we all face.

If you have a faith, or no faith please come along and enjoy coffee and cake in a friendly, non-judgemental gathering.

Why are we doing Café Church?

Well, we want to try to make Church a place that is relaxed and accessible. We know that lots of people want to talk about faith, even want to come to Church, but find a traditional service hard to understand, or boring to sit through, or just plain confusing. So, we want to develop Café Church as a place where everyone’s welcome and comfortable. It’s hopefully not too confusing or boring.

When and where?

Tuesday evening, doors open at 7.30pm for an 8.00pm start. Each session will be held in The Upper Room Cafe, Back Massie Street, Cheadle SK8 1DW (next to the back door of Tesco Express)
