We love running these Oakhall Cafes.  Each event is unique but the informal style, the welcoming atmosphere, engaging conversation and good refreshments make each one memorable and meaningful…

What happens at an “Oakhall Cafe”?

Coffee & Conversation

The first thing you’ll notice as you approach deStafford School (click for map) is the smell of great coffee and the buzz of conversation…  Round tables fill the hall bedecked in flowers and refreshments.  As with all Oakhall Church events, everyone is welcome and just takes a seat wherever they choose…

Sofas & Art

After a few minutes, someone from the main stage will welcome everyone and introduce the first interviewee who takes their seat in one of those comfy looking sofas.  Interspersed with music, film clips and other media, some have said that the Oakhall Cafes are “Caterham’s answer to the Jonathan Ross show.”

The whole programme lasts an hour and more coffee is served at the end…

Entertaining & Inspiring

We hope that all who come feel – as well as it being an entertaining hour – that it fuels further thought and conversation about some of those important big themes that we sometimes leave untouched in every day conversation.
