Emmaus Colchester supports people to work their way out of homelessness.
Emmaus Colchester provides a home and meaningful work in a social enterprise for as long as someone needs it.
Local musician and composer, Lewis Berale, joined us at the New Life Cafe on Crouch Street today for a live performance.
Lewis, who specialises in playing classical guitar, treated our lunchtime customers to a range of acoustic soundscapes.
When he’s not busy teaching Geography and Environmental Science, he plays in a folk duo, Natives, who’ll be at the Queen Street Brew House on Sunday 18th August, and in a London-based group, Casino Moon.
We hope to be welcoming Lewis to the New Life Café for another live session, very soon.
Following the Government’s announcement this evening, all our stores will close with immediate effect until further notice.
Our community will continue to support formerly homeless people to rebuild their lives, and the wellbeing of our companions, staff, volunteers and local community will always be our priority.
We are really grateful for your support during this uncertain time and we will keep you updated with any further developments.
Stay safe everyone.
