The leadership Team in 2011, headed by John & Val Penny, felt God calling the church into the community. The building was on the market at the time, and seemed ideal for the developing vision. It was based on the verse in 1 Samuel 22 v1 -2 “David left Gath and escaped to the cave of Adullam. When his brothers and his fathers household heard about it, they went down to him there. 2. All those who were in distress , or in debt, or discontented, gathered around him…” As a leadership team we longed to get alongside those folks who are hurting, who need support and the provision of a cafe would provide a centre for folks to come along for a chat and for us to signpost onto other services. Since we opened in March 2012 we have seen people helped and supported. We are excited by something as simple as our Pay it Forward scheme (read about it on The Hub page) helping to bring hope to those in our community.
