The Well is our newly enlarged and modernised foyer area to welcome members of the local community and passers-by who would like a coffee and a chat in a warm, comfortable environment without charge. It is staffed by a team of trained church members on a rota and is open each weekday from 10am to 3pm (until 12.30pm on Fridays). We have a range of Christian literature to browse or buy, and there is a children’s play area. All are welcome.
The name, ‘The Well’, seems very appropriate because, in Jesus’ day, the well was a place for people to gather and meet as they collected refreshing water. Our hope is that the local community will see The Well as a safe space to meet and chat, bring their needs, and learn about our faith. Furthermore, we have evidence of both a Roman and medieval well on our site. A drop of water was selected for our logo:
