We have a number of outreach projects happening across the circuit.
Aroma is a coffee shop and café in the heart of beautiful Haxby, a bustling town just a few miles to the north of York and easily reached by car, bus or bicycle. With a step-free doorway, they offer excellent disabled access.
They serve great Fairtrade coffee and teas, with delicious cakes (many homemade by our volunteer bakers !) as well as freshly prepared light lunches using locally sourced food.

Carecent is a breakfast centre based at York Central Methodist Church for all homeless, unemployed or otherwise socially excluded members of our community. They provide food, clothing and fellowship in a friendly and non-judgemental environment. Volunteer staff are always ready to listen and offer support and advice where possible. Where appropriate, we work with other agencies in order to move people forward to an improved lifestyle.
Carecent is open to people aged 18+ six mornings a week – Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 10.45am.
Visit the Carecent website for more information.
