The Open Door Coffee ShopOpen Door Coffee Shop

The Open Door coffee Shop was started in 1991 as a community project, funded with public monies raised at various events

The building is attached to All Saints Institute in the centre of the High Street and can seat approximately 30 people in the winter but in the summer can extend outside, using extra garden tables and chairs, with a very pleasant outlook over the Orchard. Voluntary helpers from the five churches, with their friends, staff the Coffee Shop and it is open six days a week from 10.00am to 2.00pm serving coffee, tea and light lunches.

Home-made cakes are a special attraction to both local residents and visitors from other areas, where they also find a warm welcome and a sympathetic ear from a volunteer, ready to listen to any problems and offer help and advice where necessary.

The Coffee Shop is self-supporting and any profit, after expenses and depreciation, is paid to the Outreach Fund which dispenses grants from time to time for Christian activities in the area.
