Open Door is held every Friday morning from 10am to 12noon. The back of the church is transformed into a friendly café area as we serve tea, coffee and cake. It is a comfortable and supportive place where people make friends and meet friends, sharing troubles and joys and fellowship. People come from Ripley and beyond, with lots of people coming regularly each week. We aim to provide a place where people can find company and support, and we also have available information about community services that may be available to people who are homeless or are finding it hard to make ends meet.
As part of the Derbyshire County Council funded initiative, WARM SPACE will be available every Friday from 10am until 4pm in January and February 2023. Free wifi, refreshments and simple lunch will be available. Bring your own games, jigsaws, laptops, knitting, books or conversations etc. Help Desk is available.
Our Warm Space has been extended to the end of March 2023 and will now be open from 10am – 2pm each Friday. All welcome.
