Monday afternoonsRevive Café

Bratton Baptist Church
@ 2.00pm til 4.00pm

Bratton Baptist Church are beginning a new venture: a drop-in café for a couple of hours a week. A place to relax with a cup of tea and a slice of cake; a place to meet up with friends on the way to pick up the children from school. If you need to chat, Allison and Bev will be glad to oblige. A friendly space in which to take a break from a busy day, to re-charge your batteries. If we can help in anyway, call in and we’ll do our best to support you. Leave a prayer card, so we can pray for you or come in simply for a time of solace and refreshment. We open for the first time on Monday 11th September, 2pm.

See you there.
