In 2018 Green Pastures provided a grant to the Church in order to set up a social enterprise which roasted coffee. Under the expert eye of Rev. Darren Howie, a trained barista himself, the vision is to set up a pop up coffee and brewing station in Derby City Centre.
The Church has a prison leavers support ministry called 'Inside Out', and this will create opportunities for ex-prisoners to learn some of the science behind roasting, but also develop barista skills as well as learning how to engage with the public at the pop-up.
Other fund-raising is being done with sponsored runs and swimming events in order to purchase another barista brewing station and a shop gander.
