Why the door is open

We believe that everyone in life should be able to go somewhere to meet friends, make new ones, and receive support or advice if/when needed, regardless of their present or past circumstances. Our drop-in centre is open to all people – of any faith or none.

What we offer

A warm welcome to everyone in a relaxed café style setting
Friendship & a listening ear
Value-for-money food & drink
Crisis support
Advice on a wide range of issues (including welfare & housing)
Signposting & referrals to other agencies

We also have a weekly Bible study on Tuesdays at 12pm in the Church Lounge (Tuesday@12) and an informal Sunday service at 1pm in the Church Hall (Sunday@One). A free lunch, tea and coffee are served at both of these events and everyone is very welcome.

Where we are

The Open Door Drop-in Centre is situated inside Colchester Baptist Church in the Church Lounge which is to the right of the main entrance.
