Olive Cafe began in 2014 with one simple mission: to show God’s love to the community of Edgeley.
Our Friends of Olive scheme allows members to support our work through a monthly donation. These funds allow us to :
Share God’s love and word
Combat loneliness by giving time to listen
Facilitate the delivery of community projects and events
Offer training and support to those who may not be able to get work elsewhere
Bring a community together
Provide delicious food and drinks
Work in partnership with local churches, schools and businesses to give work experience, entertain and care for local residents
In return, our members will receive regular updates by email, 2 free coffees a month and an annual thank you letter from us, detailing our biggest successes from the year.
