Alphabet City Cafe is a bustling commercial cafe on High Street, Northcote (an inner northern suburb of Melbourne, Australia). There are four or five large crowded rooms – walls decorated with the works of local artists – where friends meet for coffee or a meal to talk, read, catch up. The rooms are open to each other – but each provides its own environment. Twice each week a room at Alphabet City Cafe becomes a 'church' – or gathering place for believers and their friends. On Tuesday evening, it is Tangent – and on Thursday evening, Jeebus. Friends meet – and over a meal or coffee – they read their Bibles, discuss life and faith, pray and worship, share with their friends. Rather than investing in expensive property, more and more churches are finding ways to use the available places in their communities to gather, worship and plan. And, it puts the church back into the community!
