About us

In December 2005, Christ Church Haywards Heath took a lead role in opening the Saltworks Café. The café is open to the public Mondays to Saturdays, offering classic coffee, tea, hot and cold meals and snacks, with Internet access, children’s play areas and secluded patio. It’s a ‘normal’ café, but also a place for friendship, information, help and advice.
We want to provide:

  • a useful service to the local community – there is nothing similar in the vicinity
  • a safe meeting point for people in the community and people from the churches – to build relationships of friendship and trust
  • a loving, accepting environment where the gospel can be displayed and discussed
  • improved relationship with local authorities and real insight to community needs so we can focus our churches’ activities.
