The Living Waters is a coffee lounge close to the town centre which has been given to the fellowship for a peppercorn rent for 7 years. It is decorated in modern style, and is kept warm to give us an attractive coffee lounge. All drinks served are "fair-trade" products.
For our opening on Mondays the Living Waters is designated as a Christian healing room. We expect everyone visiting on Mondays to be coming for prayer or bringing a friend for prayer. Our opening hours on Monday are 10am-noon and 2-4:30pm
The staff are all Christians who have experienced God's love changing their lives. We want to share that love with all who come, and we serve everyone who ventures in. In the time since we first opened among other things, this has resulted in two homeless people being settled in flats in the town.
We are not in competition with the tourist cafes around, and to demonstrate that, it has been our practice to close over lunch. Further we do not provide food, except for biscuits, and neither do we charge for drinks. We rely on donations.
We do use the cafe as a base to go out to the town when we are doing specific evangelistic outreach.
