Exmouth Baptist Church is located in the very centre of Exmouth. A few months ago, with the help of a mission fund grant, they set up a community cafe.
The cafe is open once a week and attracts people from all walks and stages of life - from parents & toddlers to pensioners. The church serve cheap but tasty food and fresh coffee, and try to find time to chat with everyone who comes through the doors.
Watch Rev Mike Martin talking about the cafe:
Through the relationships which are being built up at the cafe, the church are starting to see people come to know Jesus for themselves. They are very grateful for the grant which has enabled them to begin this fantastic initiative.
Give thanks for all the people who have had some contact with the church through the cafe so far.
Pray for the volunteers who staff and run the cafe. Pray that they would have energy, patience and understanding as they meet with and talk to people from the community.
Pray for the ongoing formation of relationships, and that through these relationships more people would come to knwo and love God for themselves.
