Coffee Connect – Tuesday Lunch Special

On Tuesday 4th June 2019, St John’s Church Centre held it’s first ever Tuesday Special’. As a result of this new initiative, the coffees and homemade cakes available from Coffee Connect every weekday morning between 9am and 12noon will be supplemented each Tuesday by additional food options until 12-30pm.The ‘Tuesday Special’ each week will include various sandwich options, soup and the dessert of the day. This has all been made possible by our fantastic new kitchen facilities and, as always, by the efforts of fully trained St John’s volunteers.

We were delighted that Bishop Richard Jackson was able to enjoy, endorse and launch our ‘Tuesday Special’ on 4th June before leading a short service of prayer in the church. Bishop Richard’s visit was one of many he has been making, on his trusty Harley Davidson motorbike, to churches across Sussex as part of his Diocesan Prayer Pilgrimage in the lead up to Pentecost (Whit) Sunday on 9th June.

Bishop Richard’s Visit

It was a great privilege to welcome Bishop Richard to St. John’s Church today as he continues his Diocesan Prayer Pilgrimage. After praying in the Church, he popped in to Coffee Connect for a sandwich and a brew.
