Together we can create a special menu based on your occasion, setting, time of day and personal preferences! If you have any questions contact our Café Manager, Cathy Tonking, at or (215) 493-5080 ext. 115.
The Common Grounds Café can be modified to meet a wide variety of needs. Our methodology is a simple and effective format for hosting parties, showers, all occasion celebrations, meetings, and workshops.
Create a "special" environment with your decorations. (i.e. small round tables and hi-tops covered with a vase of flowers or balloons, and optional "talking stick" item). There should be 2-4 chairs at each table. You will be required to provide, set up and take down all decorations.
All initial reservations for the café are to be made with the church office through Café Manager, Cathy Tonking, at or (215) 493-5080 ext. 115. No reservations can be made without the manager’s consent.
Café events are reserved for Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, between 1-4 pm during the calendar year and Thursday evenings 4-7 pm, unless otherwise specified or negotiated by the café manager. There will be no events before and after our weekend services, as our café is dedicated as a social gathering place for the congregation.
There is a $200.00 fee to use the facility and to cover the cost to run the café for your 3 hour event. A $100.00 deposit is required within 7 days in order to reserve the date.
All beverages and food can be bought throughout your event. You may choose to run a tab, where you can pay the tab at the end of the event.
In the event that you would like to have catered food, you will be required to order, purchase and arrange delivery of your food. You will be provided with serving tables with black tablecloths. You will be required to provide silverware, plates, napkins etc. Please request how many tables are needed. You may bring your own rectangular tables clothes to match your decorations.
The café does have a flat screen TV with a DVD player only.
The Common Grounds Café will provide all hot drinks and a limited selection of cold beverages on a cash for sale basis. A specialty tab can be rung where you will be required to pay the tab at the end of the event. You may choose to have a cash-n-carry event, where each person will pay his or her own bill. Serving, setup and cleanup will be provided for you.
A specialty drink is available upon request where your entire party can receive a complementary drink on you; you are required to pay the tab at the end of the event. Most specialty drinks are $1.50, i.e. Peppermint mocha, Spiced Carmel Apple Cider etc.
