Our Bearsden Barista runs on Wednesdays from 1 till 4 pm, and on Thursdays from 9 am till 12 pm., serving barista-style coffees, teas and fresh home baking.
The idea grew from the experience of running a cafe each Monday during the school holidays in summer 2016, and in the autumn of that year we launched the Bearsden Barista on Wednesday afternoons.
The cafe runs on a not-for-profit basis and is staffed entirely by volunteers. Demand has grown steadily, and we now regularly serve about 50 or so parents/carers with infants and toddlers, although everyone is welcome!
All profits from the Bearsden Barista are shared between various charities that are supported by the church.
We hope to develop the cafe further in the future by catering for church-run events such as “Let’s stick together”and Parenting/Marriage/Alpha courses.
