At the Crossroads, the Church Shop & Café in Saxmundham has recently been refurbished. Sofas and tub chairs, light blue grey walls & a new filter coffee system all help to make it contemporary and comfortable. It’s accessible to all the community, regardless of age or background, and all will receive a warm welcome. The menu includes hot & cold drinks, scones, cake & biscuits. Where possible, the drinks are FairTrade , meaning the producers get a fair deal for their work. There is an excellent selection of greetings cards, Bibles, seasonal books for all ages, Advent calendars and gifts. Christian books can be ordered for speedy delivery and, as we approach Christmas, there is a good choice of books offered on a 3 for 2 deal.
Managed by St John’s Church, the staff are volunteers from local churches. Recognising how important it is that those with concerns or worries have someone to talk to, a free and confidential ‘listening service’ is available on request. Please do not hesitate to ask about this.
The shop is open from 9.30 – 12.30, Monday – Saturday. A warm welcome awaits you; this is a place to meet friends and make friends.
