Wave Cafe Closed on Fridays--but still open on Thursdays from 9-5

We piloted Wave Cafe on Fridays from November to April.  It was a nice day to be open but, sadly, hasn't been busy enough for us to justify continuing.  The good news is that Wave Cafe will continue on Thursdays as always and we are excited to see you for yoga, art and delicious lunch as usual!

Wave Cafe on BBC Songs of Praise

Wave Cafe's parent charity, Wave For Change, was inspired by christian values, and runs, among other things, a monthly inclusive church service. When the BBC found out about Wave For Change's work, and how they'd also inspired wider community projects - like Wave Cafe - they had to come and take a look!

As part of the feature on Wave For Change's work in the community, Wave Cafe ran a special (covid secure) pop-up event with art activities, food and drink, and our classic inclusive and friendly atmosphere. Presenter Katie Piper was amazed by what she saw. Watch the feature below(first shown 17.01.21).

A big thanks to all who attended, to Katie, and the fantastic BBC filming team!

 Community arts cafe trial at the United Reformed Church 

We had great fun working with the team at the newly refurbished United Reformed Church, Muswell Hill. We held a one day inclusive community arts cafe, with delicious cakes, coffee, an incredible middle eastern inspired lunch, a morning yoga session and all day painting activities. Something for everyone! It was lovely to see plenty of new faces experiencing the Wave Cafe atmosphere, as well as lots of old ones too. Thanks again to the URC for hosting us, and to Barnet Furnture Centre for their generous help with the cafe furniture. Be sure to keep an eye out for the gorgeous URC building next time you pass Queen's Avenue!


 Wave Cafe presentation at TFN live crowdfunding event 

We were thrilled to be invited to a summer fundraising event run by the The Funding Network (TFN). Adrian Carr, TFN member and Wave Cafe supporter, nominated us to pitch alongside three other charities at a live crowdfunding event held at the stunning 2 Temple Place.

Ben and Ophir made the pitch; a six minute presentation about Wave Cafe's ethos and vision (including a beautiful poem written by Ophir), followed by six minutes of questions from the floor. Thanks to the incredible generosity of TFN members, we received £7,851 in donations! The money raised is going to be spent on running our summer arts programme, our two all-day cafe events and preparations for a permanent venue.

Do check out TFN if you are looking for an innovative way to donate to exciting charities.
