Community Cafe with Full Disabled Access
Our project was twofold - firstly to make the whole of the building accessible to those with physical disabilities and secondly to create a spacious airy ‘community cafe’ to serve and empower the people of our immediate community. We have achieved that with our wonderful new extension.
We are blessed to have wonderful disabled facilities, these are now accessible from the church. This means
that many people in our community find it easier to access the
many, varied worship and prayer services that we offer. Now we have extended the front of the building providing us with a
light, spacious, airy, multi purpose room linking the church to the rest
of the facilities via a platform lift.
Many people in the church felt God stirring us to launch a community cafe - we are based in North Lowestoft, which is, at times, a thriving holiday town. However, the estate
that we serve is recognised as having many and varied needs. Employment tends to be seasonal at best, or else based ‘off shore’ leaving many families minus a parent for
significant periods. This has led to significant economic and social deprivation. We have launched a small cafe serving good quality, wholesome, healthy food providing a
safe space for people to meet together.
The cafe extension will also be used for many other things - we have relocate our regular ‘drop-in’ into the cafe, and we already have a series of outreach events - such as
‘The Y Course’ and parenting classes - booked in the diary.
