FireCloud Friday at the Hope Kitchen

In January 2014 we imagined a new event that would build community through faith and hope. Now, eight years on ‘FireCloud Friday at the Hope Kitchen’ is going strong.

FireCloud Fridays are held in our lovingly created pop-up coffee shop ‘Hope Kitchen’ and each evening incorporates food, faith, music and fun – with a generous helping of good old-fashioned hospitality.

People of all ages are always welcome at FireCloud Friday, bring your friends!

Also, BYOB and nibbles – we’ll bring the tea, coffee and cakes.


Here’s how FireCloud Friday works:

6.30pm: Soul Food – A relaxed beginning to the evening, this is your chance to eat with friends or make some new ones. If you’ve brought a dish then simply settle in at your table and dig in. If not, ask our friendly servers about the nibbles we have on offer tonight. We can help you with cutlery and all that jazz.

7.00pm: Deep and Meaningful – Things get a little deeper with real life faith stories from our big-hearted locals. Speakers will share the highs, the lows, the questions and inspirations of their own faith journey. This is the thoughtful bit of the evening so we ask that you listen, ponder and let the speaker be heard. There will be a chance for questions near the end.

9.00pm: Music and Charm – The evening segues into a relaxed, coffeehouse environment with live music from local performers. A great time to chat, mingle and soak up the ambience. We’re serving hot drinks and sweet treats – just ask our servers. Alternatively, if you’ve brought a bottle, we’ll get the glasses.

9.45pm: Last Orders – You know what this means… last chance to ask for a cuppa!

10.00pm: Home time – It’s almost bedtime so we’ll send you off with a last little morsel of food for thought.  Fear not however, we’ll be back soon – ask our servers about our next event!



Our next Hope Kitchen is Sunday 21st August. This is a special celebratory evening to bid a fond farewell to Canon Gerard Tartaglia as he moves on to his new parish. 


Doors open at 6.30pm. The action starts at 7pm and we’ll wrap up around 10pm.
