Coffee Shop

Please note that our Coffee Shop is now OPEN!!! Check out the coffee shop page for opening hours.

The team are looking forward to meeting all the regulars and hope to see new visitors in the coming year.


The Loft

The Loft has also reopened and the first night, on 10th January was enjoyed by 12 members. That’s down on normal numbers, but there were school functions and maybe some didn’t realise we were BACK!!!! So this is a reminder, that the next LOFT will be on Thursday 24th January.  ( it’s always the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month, during term time) See you there.


Building works

We were hoping to get the building back in January, but, although the work has gone well, the builders need some extra time to finish off their work and therefore we are still waiting to return.


We hope to be back in the spring, hopefully in March. In the meantime, our Sunday services will continue in Bunwell village Hall. Unfortunately, the Community meal has to remain on hold until further notice. For updates on progress, please return to this site, or ask in the coffee shop.


Sunday Family service 13th January

This service, was run by the Sunday School team and the children, Amie, Polly and Lily. Ably assisted by the worship group and Jackie on computer.

It was a fun service, the puppets performed the song “This is Me” from the Greatest Showman and were well received.

The children took on their roles with enthusiasm and were impressive in their confidence and willingness to fully own this service on behalf of the Sunday School group. 

Well done to all involved......what’s next???


Sunday Services in January and February

Until the building work is complete, we will continue to hold our Sunday Services in the Bunwell Village Hall through January and February. However, for our services on Sunday 27th January, we will be in the Carleton Rode Village Hall.

We hope that you will come and join us in our temporary home.
