Dovecote Café

A quiet shared space where it's ok not to be ok

Sundays 3pm-5pm & Thursdays 10am-1pm

A place for shared experiences and friendships. You are invited to bring a hobby or an activity to share with others.


What to expect...

  • When you arrive someone will say hello and show you where to get a cup of tea or coffee, and a slice of cake. There's no charge for the refreshments (although any donations that are made we pass on to local charities)

  • We provide jigsaws, colouring in, wool for knitting etc. but if you'd like to bring along a hobby to do or share with others please do.

  • We tend to sit and chat in twos or threes around tables as we engage in our hobby / craft of choice.

  • There's also a quiet room / prayer space which adjoins the cafe which you can use at any time if you want to take some time out to reflect in the stillness.

  • At some point in each session there's an opportunity to join a short (10min) time of led prayer / quiet reflection in the quiet room if you'd find that helpful, but there's absolutely no pressure to do so!

The Dovecote is part of a national initiative called Renew Wellbeing, a charity which helps churches open spaces of welcome and inclusion in partnership with mental health teams to improve mental and emotional wellbeing.
