Lammas Street Centre

The Lammas Street Centre has been in place for over 25 years and it began with a small group of dedicated members of the English Baptist Church wanting to open up the basement to members of the community, and in particular to those more vulnerable members of society.  They began by opening on a Wednesday between 10.00a.m. and 2.00p.m. to offer a warm welcome, a cup of tea and biscuit and a quiet time for reflection.  Over the last five years, the church and the centre have undergone major refurbishment which is reflected in the wonderful facilities within our Cellar Café 

 The Lammas Street Centre has many uses.  It hosts coffee mornings; is hired out to various clubs, societies and educational establishments and is a very major part of functions within our church life. 

 Over the years this facility has developed from the “Drop in Centre” as it was then called to the wonderful Cellar Café by which it is known today where refreshments are prepared to a high standard and the majority of the hot/cold food offered is home cooked and the café has maintained a hygiene rating of 5 since September 2013.   The main ethos of the Lammas Street Centre hasn’t changed at all, we are there to offer companionship to those who may seek it, provide good food to those who can/cannot afford restaurant prices and the church is available for those who wish to spend some time in quiet reflection and prayer. People are available to talk about anything you may wish and offer help and support where possible. The ethos of the Centre is summed up in the prayer which can be found here.
