Vivesco Café first opened its doors 15 years ago on Tulketh Street, with the aim of sharing God’s love in the community and as a safe meeting place for teenagers in the evenings. Named in honour of Vivien Dawson, a  beloved member of Christ Church who lost her life to cancer, Vivesco aptly means “Come to life” in Latin. We are both a registered charity and limited company with trustees and directors.

Almost nine years ago we moved Vivesco Café into the Christ Church building and our emphasis changed into meeting the needs of those who cross our doorstep each day. We aim not only to serve good food, but also to serve God’s love, offering a safe threshold to cross into church life and ultimately find a living faith in Jesus. We seek to offer a warm welcome, friendship and prayer where appropriate.

Our café doors are open six days a week throughout the year with a small nucleus of paid staff, supported by volunteers. The directors are very grateful to all who give their time and energy to help support this valuable ministry and welcome anyone who would like to be involved.
