Our wonderful Trinity Team bring you Trinity Cafe

Trinity café has come a long way since we started in 2015. We have now become a regular meeting place, for local people and neighbouring villages. We have grown over the years and have developed the café into a well-established venue with a sociable and hospitable atmosphere.

In summer we have outdoor seating with gazebos and parasols. With Cafes every second and fourth Thursday of each month, we have made a lot of new friends and have added more events to our diary. We can be found at our annual church fete every May, followed in June with “Jazz on the Lawn”, where you are invited to bring friends and family for a summer evening picnic with music. We held a magnificent event for the Platinum Jubilee of her late Majesty The Queen, and we held a Coronation Lunch for His Majesty King Charles III.

The latest addition to our calendar is our monthly Trinity Talks where we invite a local resident to come along to give us a talk on a subject of interest from their life. The evening starts at 5.45 with nibbles and wine, the talk begins at 6pm and lasts 45 minutes with time for questions afterwards. As we approach the Christmas season our café is suitably decorated and we enjoy the season’s fayre of mince pies and cakes with a carol or two by the Christmas Tree.

Throughout the year we offer freshly made, home-baked cakes and pastries, delivered on the morning of our café. Hot chocolate, squash, fresh coffee, and a choice of teas all served in our collection of vintage china. We do not have a price list; all donations are divided between our locally chosen charity and the upkeep of Trinity Hall.

All are welcome and we have an area for children with books and toys. The cafe is the hub of Coleman’s Hatch and all are welcome. Always fundraising, these are some of our local charities: Our local Police Specials, Coleman’s Hatch Alms Houses, Riding for the disabled, The Bevern Trust, Crowborough First Responders, The Ashdown Forest Foundation. We choose a different local charity each year.

Monies raised by events for 2024 will be equally shared by Crawley Open House to support homeless and others with social needs and also to Trinity Hall for further improvements and maintenance of the café.

In Trinity Hall, Coleman’s Hatch From 9.30am-12pm

Jonathan Squire gave a very moving speech celebrating Nicky’s remarkable life . Donations from the Café will be going to Riding for the  Disabled, Nicky’s favourite charity.
