St. Helen's and St. Paul's Church
Serving Sandal, Walton and Portobello in Wakefield UK.
The Spring Community Shop & Cafe
What we are all about
We exist to serve everyone with loving care and a welcome that reflects the values of our Parish. We are a 'not for profit' social enterprise run by the church for everyone who enters our building. The shop offers fantastic second hand goods and clothing for sale at reasonable prices, with even the odd 'sale' along the way. The cafe promotes a healthy and nutritious menu, which changes daily and offers a great range of home-cooked food and cakes that can be enjoyed by all ages. We aim to support our local economy and reduce our food miles through using local suppliers- our bread is supplied by Hofmann's, our meat is supplied by Richmond's, our teas and coffees are all Fair Trade including our speciality coffees provided by Gia and our fresh flowers are supplied by Paradise Bouquets.
We offer Prayer every morning, Tuesday- Saturday from 9.45am until 10.00am, which anyone is welcome to join, and for those unable to make it we do offer a prayer card tree which enables you to name people on the cards and we will include them in our morning prayers.
