Green Pastures Community Hub
An exciting new initiative at 20 Norwich Street, Dereham sees
Dereham Baptist Church, Green Pastures Christian Bookshop
and the community-based charity, Love Dereham
partner to be a Christian presence serving the local and wider community.
On 28th May 2019 Green Pastures Bookshop began operating from the street-facing retail area which used to be Adcocks (formerly Bennetts) electrical store.
The rear of the shop gives open access to another area which is used by DBC for Listen Up and Love Dereham for Community-based activities during shop opening hours – including the new base for the Community Fridge.
This comfortably furnished room can be partitioned off when the shop is shut to provide a separate meeting place for a range of activities.
Across the passageway behind the shop, the Hub includes two other rooms.
There is an upper office area used for administration by Love Dereham and the Christians Against Poverty (CAP) centre. Lastly, at street level, there is a small unit which is used as a quiet space by DBC and on certain days by 4Cs Counselling Service (currently based in our church premises).
