St James Church is a Place of Welcome.

Places of Welcome is a growing network of hospitality run by local community groups who want to make sure that everyone in their area has a place to go for a friendly face, a cup of tea and a conversation if and when they need it.

The primary aim of the Places of Welcome network is that “Every neighbourhood has places where all people feel safe to belong, connect and contribute.”

Although every Place of Welcome is different, they all offer:

  • Friendship and hospitality
  • Regular opening at the same time each week
  • Free refreshments
  • Local knowledge about the neighbourhood

Everyone is welcome to come along on any Thursday between 1pm and 3pm for a brew and a chat.
