Crossroads Church opened the Coffee Shop in December 2000 and bought the building in October 2004 with the help of a grant from the Coalfields Regeneration Trust. As well as the downstairs seating area, there is also a spacious upstairs area, complete with fireplace and views down Ashington main street. The shop had a complete refit of the food preparation area (shown above) in February 2008 followed by the decoration of the outside area and installation of new electric shutters in September 2008. New furniture was purchased in October 2008.

We believe that the Coffee Shop is one of the ways members of our church can put something back into the community. Some of our staff are volunteers, who give their time and effort to help make the shop a pleasant and friendly environment.

Outside of our normal opening hours, the shop is used for community projects, meetings and cookery demonstrations.

On Christmas Day, 2002, we hosted a Christmas lunch for people who would otherwise be on their own. The event was so popular that it has been hosted in larger venues ever since.

Each year since November 2004, over 300 shoeboxes and 600 have been donated to the Samaritans Purse Shoebox Appeal by church members, coffee shop customers, friends and neighbours. The shoeboxes are filled with small toys and gifts for children both in this country and overseas, who would otherwise not receive any presents at Christmas time.

The Coffee Shop staff donate their tips to charity, alternating between local, national and international causes. Fundraising events are also held to raise money for charity. The following charities have been supported over the years;

RNLI Newbiggin

Farm Africa

St Oswald's Hospice

Toby Henderson Trust

Great North Air Ambulance

PPUK (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research)

In September 2006, we co-sponsored the training of a guide dog for the blind puppy, called Winston
