Church brings charity shop and café back to life

A charity shop and café on the Bellamy Road Estate in Mansfield is to reopen on 4th December, at 9.30am.

The Life Centre on Egmanton Road has been taken on by the Life Church, which will also use the base for community events.

As well as the café and shop, the centre will comprise a sorting area for donations for the shop and a base for outreach events, such as a youth drop-in for teenagers, a welcome hour for the elderly and free community events.

The centre, which closed in August, has been repainted, given a new look inside and will be run by a new management team and volunteers.

It will be open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 9am to 2pm.

The centre is appealing for donations of good quality goods and any monetary donations would also be welcomed. They would be used towards projects such as a possible money advice centre and a foodbank.

The church meets in South Mansfield Community Centre, on Bellamy Road.

As part of the Ground Level Network of churches, its Sunday morning services from 10.30am are modern, child-friendly and informal. There are also activities throughout the week.

The Voice Of Vision community choir will feature at a Community Christmas Gospel Concert at the Life Church on 16th December, from 6.30pm-9pm.

Admission is £3 and includes free refreshments.
