The Haven on North Street sits on the site of the former North Street Methodist Church in Crewe, Cheshire.

In the early 2000s the church decided to merge North Street Methodist Church with Coppenhall Methodist Church (situated just a mile down the road) to better fulfil their mission in the town.  This then left the exciting proposition of what to do with the site and The Haven was born.

Originally called 'Whats Happening on North Street?' what you see today has taken years of hardwork and dedication to create a thriving community.

The coffee shop is open to everyone, not just Methodists, and is designed to create a safe and inclusive space for all to relax in and enjoy.  The modern, purpose built, building creates a welcoming atmosphere in which to eat some of the freshly made cakes or sample some fairly traded hot drinks all served by a team of dedicated volunteers.

Who knew a coffee shop could be Local, Ethical and Enjoyable?

The ongoing project is supported by the Methodist Church and is run on its core values which can be found below.
