Church and Coffee


News in the Surrey Herald is that The Chertsey Bookshop (recently closed) faces a potential take-over by the local church St Peter’s, who have said it was a good meeting place

Which raises a number of unasked questions: Is the church itself not a good meeting place? Evidently not because it stands empty most of the time. But does the church really need another site, 100 metres down the road to provide a meeting place? I also remember the exhorbitant price of a sandwich and coffee in The Chertsey Bookshop the last time I was there and wonder if the new owners would reduce prices by using voluntary low/unpaid labour? After all the volunteers would presumably be performing a community service and the church is a non-profit organisation.

The story is here but there are no questions asked.
