About the Coffee Shop


This fantastic community facility that started with a flask and an empty room, continues to be an oasis for busy villagers, a warm welcome for those who come to ballet, a creative space for art and craft ideas and a test audience for local entrepreneurs’ new business ideas.

We still rely on volunteers, but we are now in a purpose built coffee shop. If you are interested in joining the team, either with a regular slot or to join our ‘reserves’ please contact Margriet Wells via the Church Office.
 

What’s on offer?


We serve fresh fairtrade Columbian coffee, tea and hot chocolate and DOLCE GUSTO speciality coffee including cappuccino for £1.30. 
Our organic milk comes form the Pinewood refill pantry - so no plastic waste
We have a choice of snacks.

We sell all sorts of gifts including a good selection of:
  • Locally made jams and marmalade
  • Cards including handmade and hand painted and some by local artists.
  • Handmade knitwear - one of our regular knitters at Knit and Natter that meets every Tuesday, makes children’s cardigans and jumpers – prices start at £4: a perfect gift.
 

During the week…


We have a small area for toddlers to play.   So if you need an oasis in your busy day or a friendly face please drop in, there is always a listening ear.

The Knit, Sew & Natter group meet every Tuesday from 10am - midday in the coffee shop.  If you’ve ever fancied trying your hand or have a project that needs an expert, why not drop in?  They would be happy to help.  No need to bring any materials – a starter pack for either crochet or knitting can be supplied.

The Wednesday Communion congregation meet in the Coffee Shop after the service in the Chapel. The service is at 11am, Soup's On at midday.

Need a chat? The Young at Heart Coffee Group meet from 10am - midday for a good yarn over a cuppa.
 

We support several charities


Many of our handmade items are sold with a proportion going to local charities.

We collect small/travel size toiletries to make up bags for the homeless.  If anyone has airline goodies, toothbrushes or sample sizes of toothpaste, shampoo, bodywash, soap, flannels etc, they can be left in The Coffee Shop and assured of a good home with SHOC - Slough Homeless Our Concern. 

At the end of each financial year the Coffee Shop donates 20% of its profit to the Nepal Leprosy Trust (NLT) sponsor a child program.  This scheme is set up to enable children from very poor families, affected by leprosy or other disadvantages, to receive an education. Without this support they would usually be sent out to work.
