The coffee shop has been raising funds for the church for 20 years.
In the church building – under the church vestry – with entrances off the main shopping street (Church Street). Look for our banner and signs.
From Easter and throughout the summer the shop is open to raise church funds on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, 10.30am to 3pm. Other charity groups, such as Guide Dogs for the Blind, RNLI, National Animal Welfare Trust, Falmouth/Penryn Food bank, run the shop, and raise funds for themselves on Monday, Thursday and Friday.
The King Charles volunteers can offer: – Tea, coffee (filter), hot chocolate and a selection of soft drinks. Home made cakes Scones (sweet and savoury) Cream teas, quiches or soup
Yes – and you can bring your own food, so long as you buy a drink from us.
Our charges are very reasonable. A pot of tea is 90p. A cream tea £3.20
It’s just the right size – 7 or 8 tables seating about 30 people. We like to be able to chat a little to our customers – although when we’re busy we know we are making money for good causes.
You can browse our second-hand book stall. Or you may be tempted by our home made jams and chutneys – including David’s Hot Pepper Jelly. You can also get a copy of the 7th edition of the King Charles Coffee Shop Cook Book – just £1.20.
Definitely yes. We need people to serve in the shop and to join the ‘Cake Brigade’ who prepare food at home. We need donations of books too.
No. Most of our volunteers are not members of King Charles Church, but just enjoy being involved in the shop.
