The Church Café was renovated in the summer of 2018 in preparation for the opening of the newly built Peach Place right outside our doors.

Café Mosaic has been named after the beautiful mosaic fish sculpture on the side of the Bradbury Centre.  Mosaics also represent what our Church and the Café mean to many people.  A collection of people gathered to make a fantastic 'whole' and volunteers from many different backgrounds help us to provide a warm, friendly welcome.

COVID 19 StaffTina, Claire and the team would love to welcome you.

Charity Coffee Mornings

We are supporting some national campaigns where the charities are able to provide publicity. There will be no stalls, but we will have regular opportunities to support these campaigns by buying coffee and cake – what could be better!  Claire and Tina will be looking for support during these Charity Mornings, and we hope, with your support, to raise significant sums to donate to these good causes.

Current planned dates are as follows:

Friday 17 June 10-12   Alzheimer's Society: Cupcake Day
Friday  8 July   10-12   The Wokingham Parkinson's Café

On these mornings all monies will be donated to the charity - donations of cake always welcome.

Report

Thank you to everyone who supported our coffee morning in aid of Children in Need on Friday 12 November.  We raised £310!

Annual Report  (March 2022)

Café Mosaic has had a challenging 2 years being in lockdown for the majority of this time.  We are now back and working very hard to increase our visitors which include many new groups who use Café Mosaic as a relaxed place to meet for an informal catch up.  Our loyal visitors are now returning as the pandemic seems to be less of a threat, we hope this will continue to be the case.  We hope we can now go from strength to strength without any more closures.  The introduction of many new community groups is one positive step we have seen . These include:

Little Fishes

This new group was introduced following the closure of the long-standing Nursery a couple of years ago, to offer a space for mums, child minders and grandparents alike.  It allows free safe play for young children and social interaction for the mums and carers.  It has continued to grow in popularity since its introduction and it has increased Café Mosaic’s revenue with the second hatch open to the café kitchen offering organic snacks and light bites.  It is currently open Thursdays and we are seeing an increase in attendance over the last few months.

Parkinson Café

This group meets once a month in Café Mosaic and is NHS led.  It provides support for people who have Parkinson’s and their carers and is very well attended by approximately 25 people.  It is a valuable service for those who attend in a friendly, relaxed café environment.

WI Meetings

These groups have only recently started to meet in Café Mosaic once a month, and they have remarked that they love the space and friendly service from staff and volunteers.

Link Group

This is managed by The Link Visiting Scheme.  They use the church for Chair Yoga and Active minds both groups are attended very well and provide a regular income for us, buying teas and coffees from us.  It has been a very successful group and invaluable community need, which in turn has also involved the Café in a positive way.

Grief and a cuppa

This is a new group starting every fortnight in March, to bring people together to support and understand how they cope with their loss.  We are hoping this will prove an invaluable and positive addition to are many successful groups.

Along with the continued support of our very loyal customers, the Café is always busy with a lovely vibrant community feel.  We still run our Charity days once a month, including Thames Hospice, Miscarriage association, Children in Need to name a few.

Claire, Nancy and I have all recently completed our level 2 food and Hygiene course we will all also be completing a Health and Safety course in the next few weeks.

Two years ago, we were planning to replace all the doors and drawer fronts in the kitchen as they had become very tired and tatty, resulting in trims falling off making it hard to clean and keep hygienic.  I am now pleased to report this work has now been completed, without any major disruption to the Café and looks really bright and clean.  We are so pleased to have achieved this at last.

A valuable addition to what we can now offer is freshly baked homemade cakes every week.  These are supplied to us by a lovely lady called Beth, whose mother came to the café when she was alive and enjoyed her visits so much that Beth wanted to give something back.  Such a lovely thought and her cakes are amazing.

Lunches have continued to prove more and more popular.  We now offer these on a Tues/Thurs/Fri.  We have had many new customers coming in to try our lunches as we are now part of Peach Place.  With a larger number of people using the other cafes in the square, we are more visible and part of this new development.

Clasp attend a choir on Friday lunch time and require their lunches before they start.  We are currently taking 15/20 pre-orders before the regular lunchtime customers which is fantastic news for Café Mosaic, Clasp also pre order on a Tuesday as they stay for lunch after their regular Tuesday meetings.

We opened for the Winter Carnival last year which once again proved very successful so hopefully we will participate again this year.

Let’s hope the Summer weather will be kind this year and we can use our outside tables and chairs again to raise our profile in Peach Place even more.

My role as Centre Manager is always an interesting one and at times over the last 2 years a challenge but that’s what makes it enjoyable and gives us the encouragement to keep working to make it better.

I would not be able to do this without the care and support of Claire and Nancy, who worked with me every day with the same commitment.  Also, the volunteers who have returned to give their valuable time to us, a huge thank you.

Let’s hope we continue to have another successful year where we introduce and welcome many more people into our lovely community café.
