We love running these Oakhall Cafés. 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 Café”?
Coffee & Conversation
The first thing you’ll notice as you approach is the smell of great coffee and the buzz of conversation… Tables fill the hall with 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, it is interspersed with music, film clips and other media throughout.
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 everyday conversation.
