Hub Cafe

Our Community Hub Cafe will have a ‘soft start’ re-opening after all the lockdowns for two Tuesdays before Christmas, being open from 10:30am to 12 Noon on Tuesday the 7th and 14th December. We then hope to return to weekly from Tuesday the 11th January. Spaces will be more limited to allow for some separation. We have bought and installed three air purifiers that can help clean the air as if the Hall was ventilated three time an hour. However, it is still good practice to sanitise hands on arrival and wear a mask if moving around and we are asking if chairs won’t be moved, but kept at the tables they are placed at to maintain separation. Thank you!

St Jude’s Community Hub Cafe is a place of welcome for anyone.

You will always find a free cup of coffee or tea, company, some good conversation or a listening ear. It is open every Tuesday morning between 10am and 12noon in the Upper Hall of St Jude’s Church. (The entrance is up the ramp by the bus stop on Beaumont Road outside the Church and Hall)

There are also regular walks every Tuesday, leaving the front of St Jude’s church at 10:30 (More here on our ‘Walks’ page.

Community happens when people come together

The Hub is supported by The Co-operative Group Local Community Fund. To find out more about how much has been raised so far visit our profile on The Co-op page here. The St Jude’s Community Hub was also awarded a grant of £500 by the Plymouth Police Commander on 18th December from the Proceeds of Crime as part of the ‘It’s Payback Time’ from Plymouth Herald. Thanks for all the help given to collecting votes from the Herald.

The St Jude’s Community Hub is a local initiative of various partners including the Church, local NHS Surgeries, the City Council and Councillors, the Police & Crime Commissioner, Transforming Plymouth Together and many others to bring connected support into local areas. The first part of that evolving group was this Hub Cafe with its free teas and coffees, that now has weekly walks, free wifi, laptops, free access to Ancestry online, friendly conversation, help accessing the City Council Portal… if we can help, we will
