United Church Dorchester

Community and Outreach: Coffee Lounge

The Coffee Lounge  provides the opportunity to sit and chat over a cup of tea, coffee, or whatever your taste, and if tempted, a slice of homemade cake. 

The friendly environment is a life-line for some of the visitors - in some cases it is the only company regularly available to them. The volunteers provide a professional service, not disliking a chat themselves!

Opening hours: Tuesdays and Fridays, 10.00am - 12.00 noon. On Wednesday mornings, the Coffee Lounge staff also serve coffee in the Church Hall, running alongside the weekly Market Day Services.

The Coffee Lounge aims to offer a cup of coffee and cake and a listening ear to all who visit. We work in teams to provide the service and all volunteers are welcome.

We offer a range of drinks (including Fairtrade tea and coffee) alongside an appetising selection of homemade cakes and other goodies!

Health and hygiene are always uppermost in our running of the Coffee Lounge: individual Health and Hygiene certificates are displayed inside the Coffee Lounge.

Managing Team: Sue Gannaway, Mary Martin, Elizabeth Haynes and Diana Leeming. 

The Art Exhibition in the Coffee Lounge changes regularly and currently features work by a range of local artists. 

 A sample of the work is shown here - do come along and see the rest! Many of the works are for sale, so please note that the paintings are copyrighted.
