So last week we told you that we are launching our new pop-up coffee shop. This week we have even more exciting news:

STAY & PLAY is here!

Stay & Play is our new parent/carer and toddler group that will be opening every Friday morning from 9:30am – 11am. The price is £1.50 for one child with parent/carer and then 50p for each additional child.

There will be tea, coffee, juice and toast included.

We’ve been busy over the last few weeks stocking up on toys, highchairs and crafty stuff and we are really looking forward to the place filled with the noise of children playing and parents/carers nattering!

With your help we can make this a place for parents to connect with each other, form and nourish friendships … and most importantly, a safe and fun place for kids to play and socialise.

So if you have a little one, and you have a Friday morning free – why not pop in? We’d love to see you.

If you want more information then please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on

REFRESH COFFEE – 26th Feb 2015

More than great coffee
More than great coffee


It is here!

immerse can proudly announce the launch of the first pop-up coffee shop in Kidsgrove. Every Thursday morning starting on Thursday 26th February a coffee shop will pop-up at The Galley Centre, Whitehall Avenue at 9:00am and then disappear by 1:00pm! Amazing!

We can promise you great coffee – whatever you fancy! We can provide lattes, cappuccinos, mochas, americano, hot chocolate …. and …. for the less coffee minded – Tea!

There will also be a small selection of cakes and snacks.

But it is more than great coffee.

It is great community! That is what we believe in more than anything. REFRESH COFFEE  is a place where you can meet friends, catch up on old news and wile away the morning and who knows – it might even be a place where new friendships are made.

So great coffee, great community – what’s not to like?

And all our coffee is fair trade so the world is a little better for every coffee you buy.

And with free wifi – you can stay connected.

Thursday 26th February 9:00am – 1:00pm –  we hope to see you there.

Part of the rhythm of our community is to worship together once a month. Everyone is welcome and we normally have music (loud), video, conversation, coffee and more often than not – food!

If you are the type of person who likes to chew things over, to think and dialogue with others about BIG stuff, if you are suspicious of being given answers but love to seek them …. then this might be a space for you.

If you love to experience stuff, to FEEL as well as to know, if music and singing kind of get to you …. then this might be your kind of thing!

… and if you love a brew – this is definitely your kind of thing!

Sunday 1st March 2015       You are more than welcome!

Toasting success

We love serendipity here at immerse!

A conversation with a teacher about wanting to offer toast to her class at the beginning of the day led to us offering to buy the bread and butter needed to feed the class each morning.

The class teacher then invited Simon in to ask him why immerse would want to do such a thing. Simon told the story of Jesus feeding 5,000 people and it all began with a young boy who shared his food.

Sharing and generosity leaves open enough space for miracles to happen.

The year 5 children have now written to local businesses to see if they are willing to buy some bread for other classes in the school.

Who knows where this miracle of generosity will end ….

You can see a few photo’s of the kids enjoying their toast here

Exciting News!!!

Some really exciting news to share.

Firstly on the 26th of February we will be using our mobile coffee bar here in Kidsgrove at The Galley Centre for a pop up cafe. A pop up cafe is just that – it pops up …. and then pops off! It’s a coffee bar that is not open all the time but opens a couple of times a week and can open at different times and different places.

We’ve decided to open it up on a Thursday morning and see how it goes. If you are around on a Thursday morning and fancy really good coffee or a cup of tea – then pop in to our pop up cafe.

Watch this space for more details.

If that wasn’t enough excitement for one post we can also announce that we will be launching a parent and toddler group the following day on Friday 27th February 9:30 – 11:00am. Stay n Play will be open every Friday morning at The Galley Centre and should be a great place for parents and carers with young children to connect with each other and for their kids to play to their hearts content.

Again, watch this space for more details.

December 7th – put it in your diary!

kerygma christmas.001

December 7th is a big day for us at immerse (well – it could be a long day!)

At 3pm we have Kerygma and at 6pm we have re:charge. The chances are we will have food in between for those that want to be around all day or for those that stick around after kerygma or come early to re:charge. So if you can make all of it…. some of it…. a bit of it …. it would be great to see you.
