The Olive Grove
The outreach project which led to the opening of “The Olive Grove” in the former Post Office in the Kingsmills shops has been a great success story. If the loss of that hub of community was keenly felt, church members being encouraged to open a tea room as a place of warm welcome and hospitality, and furthermore a base for various groups and “outside the walls” activities for the church, has proved to be a great step forward.
The Olive Grove is managed on a voluntary basis, and serves fairly traded tea, coffee and hot chocolate, and homemade soup, homemade bread and delicious scones and cakes freshly made on the premises, along with a selection of sandwiches, toasted sandwiches, bacon rolls, paninis etc. Vegetarians and those on gluten free diets can be catered for.
The opening times are:
- Monday – Friday 10 am to 4 pm
- Saturday 11 am to 2 pm
