​Car Wash Café Church

​Car Wash Café Church Where: Hanley Broadheath Village Hall
When: Sunday 31st July, 9am

It will take place at Hanley Broadheath Village Hall and starts at 9.00 a.m.

“We hold Café Church if there is a fifth Sunday in the month”, explained Vicar, Robert Barlow. “We provide tea, coffee, toast, bacon rolls and newspapers”, he continued. “It’s a chance for villagers to meet and we finish with an act of worship.”

“I thought about Jesus washing the disciples’ feet”, explained church member Pete Thorp, “and wondered what we could do to serve others. We struck upon the idea of washing people’s cars, so anyone who comes to café church this month will also go away with a clean and shiny car!”

Buckets, clothes, sponges will all be there. We'll wash any car that is brought to the village hall car park between 9.00 and 10.00 a.m. It is part of the local Church serving the community.

The short service will focus on the idea of how Jesus serves us and how we serve others. The event starts at 9.00 and will be all done and dusted by 11.00. No charge is made but donations are welcome.
