Villagers popped in for a brew at a special pop up cafe at their church.

Residents gathered in the grounds of St Thomas’ Church in Kilnhurst to enjoy a cuppa in the Cafe Encounter.

The cafe is housed inside a marquee and popped up at the Highthorn Road-based church for a few days.

Staff were on hand to serve tea, coffee, cakes and light lunches to parishioners.

Reverend Andy Brewerton said: “The pop up cafe is a great way to get new people in the church grounds to see what we are all about.”

There are hopes of arranging for the cafe to return.
