'Red Café is a special place because everyone is welcome.  I first came along when I was 11 and although I was shy I was encouraged to be a part of the place - and now, even though I have a full time job, I'm still come back to help out. It's such a great place to be.'

- Jordan Best - a dedicated volunteer


Our mission is to bring people together and help build good relationships. It’s straightforward grass roots stuff really. We love the fact that one of Swansea’s goals is to be a city where everyone matters because that’s just what we think too. Every person is important!

Maybe one of the words that best sums up what Red Café is all about is shalom. It’s one we’ve borrowed from Hebrew culture and it’s pretty difficult to translate into English in less than a paragraph! The nearest we can get are words like wholeness and completeness


It’s about well being.

And not just on the outside but on the inside too. 

In hearts and spirits.

It’s about peace,




and harmony.

We like the idea of possibility and we are excited by what is yet to be! Inspired by faith and energised by hope we believe that Red Café can be a place of discovery, development and shalom.
