The 3:16 Cafe

Cup of coffee

We are often asked what does 3:16 mean, is this a question you have? 3:16 is where our volunteers live out God’s word by providing a safe place, a place where a cup of coffee or tea can be enjoyed in peace and quiet, or if you would rather, it can be that meeting place where we can lean on each other, laugh together and some more successfully then others may lose weight. I say may, advisedly as when the yummy cakes are out thoughts of weight lose seem to fly out of the window! The cafe also hosts a monthly light lunch usually on the 1st Friday and other ad hoc occasions.


Day Times
Wednesday 11am -12noon
Saturday 10.30am -12.30pm
1st Friday of the month 12noon – 1.30pm


As a church we chose to become part of the Fairly Traded community. We use fairly traded tea, coffee and sugar and try to source our other products ethically.

Part of the work of the cafe is providing access to a ‘Food Store’ where basic items of food are available for individuals and families who are facing hardship.

John 3:16 God so loved the world he gave his only son so that we may have eternal live.


This year we have had 7 charity coffee mornings in the 3:16 café  which have proved very popular and successful and raising:-

This is a magnificent total for so many worthwhile charities –  so a very big thank you to all who organised them and of course to all who came to support them.

Next year we have 5 charity coffee mornings booked so far – so if you would like to organise one for a charity you support please let me know.
