The Vine Cafe

The Vine Cafe

Looking for somewhere to grab a coffee? Why not pop into The Vine Cafe and join us for an espresso, latte, cappuccino or mocha, all made using freshly ground coffee. We also sell tea, paninis, cakes and more…

We pride ourselves on the fact that we’re a very child friendly café:

Mondays, we have a craft session for parents and their pre-school children from 10-11am.

Wednesdays, we have Story Time for pre-school children. Come and relax & grab a coffee as Morag reads to your children from 2pm.

There are toys to occupy children in the café at all times.

Keep an eye on our Facebook & Twitter pages to see what else is happening!

Arts Cafe Nights at The Vine Cafe

On the fourth Friday of each month at 7.30pm at The Vine Cafe, we provide evenings of quality entertainment in a relaxed atmosphere, including live music, drama, comedy, poetry, film and more. This is an opportunity to invite people to be part of our community and a chance to build relationships whilst having a good time! Come along for coffee and entertainment and bring some friends.

If you want to contribute to the evenings, or know any talented local performers, contact Ian Peacock.

Prayer On The Streets

Some of our folks offer prayer and Christian literature for people in the local Co-op foyer. Since it started, we have met many people, had interesting conversations and have seen God heal miraculously. This is an opportunity to show the love of God in our community in a very low-key way.

If you would like to get involved, contact Ian Peacock. Training is provided.

Greater Manchester Community Chaplaincy

The idea of supporting offenders on release from prison under the name of Community Chaplaincy came to England from Canada, where for over 25 years it has been a successful way of supporting men and women when released from prison.

The success of the scheme is the co-operation between a faith-based organisation, Greater Manchester Community Chaplaincy, and the statutory agencies, prison, police and probation.

They need volunteers who will “walk alongside” men and women who are resettling back into the community on their release from prison. For more information, visit their website.

60+ Outreach

We have a number of people in the church who are committed to serving people who are living in sheltered dwellings.

These ministries currently operate in:

  • Ranulph Court, Salford

The work in these homes is often a mixture of spiritual support and friendship. In Ranulph Court we also run a lunchtime club for the elderly people there.

Football Focus

We have a few guys committed to building relationships with young people via the medium of football. They get involved in training and mini leagues. Supported by Football Focus, they are FA trained.
