On the evening of 2nd March, it was discovered the Coffee Van had been stolen.
It was subsequently recovered, but was beyond economic repair. All the equipment was found to have been stolen too.
However, following an appeal for donations, where not only over £10,000 was raised, but a van was gifted, free of charge, they hope to be up and running again on Sunday 11th June.
Chelmsford Churches Working Together at the Boreham Car Boot Sale…
Forget your image of traditional church; this is all about church being relevant for the 21st century. They provide top quality freshly ground coffee, cups of tea or hot chocolate, and a chance to relax. 50% of the takings are given to charities.
They don’t push church onto anyone, but there are always people on hand if anyone wants to chat.
Once back in action, you will find them there throughout the Boot Sale season from about 7 am to midday.

In the 2016 season, there was a Prayer Space, which is set up alongside their van. This will be a somewhere to perhaps sit and pray, somewhere to leave requests for prayer and opportunity to have a personal encounter with God.
Christian volunteers are also always welcome – why not pop along to take a look or email them at email@example.com
