Westfield Youth Cafe up and running

'Cafe Izaya', the youth cafe on Westfield estate in Yeovil, was officially launched last week, and we had a great commissioning service on Saturday night. There was a small army of volunteers - my guesstimate was about 25, and church leaders from quite a few different places who came to support it. Fantastic to see little St. Peters church full to bursting, and as of yesterday the Cafe went live and opened its doors to local youth for the first time. Great stuff, and lots of credit to the folk at St. Peters church who've watched their hall being taken apart and put back together, and the people from Urban Warriors, especially Adam, Stacey and Jeff, who've made it happen.

Though as I said on Saturday evening, the real heroes are the people who prayed.

(Follow the 'Youth Cafe, Westfield' link in the sidebar to see pictures of what it looked like before. As you can see, one or two last minute adjustments still being made to the building, very nice bit of wooden floor going in at the moment)
