Community coffee shop launched

Mansfield Baptist Church has launched a weekly community coffee shop on Thursdays 10am-2pm, with prices starting at 40p, for refreshments including coffee, homemade cakes and light lunches.

Visitors can also swap or buy books, and have a go at card making.

The venture is also aimed at helping local small businesses, and each week one is invited to have a table with a small percentage of profits going to charity. Interested businesses should contact 633778 / 652635 or email

The church is also planning a regular table top sale. Tables are free, with 25% of money made going to a local charity.
