Roots was born when a group of friends put their heads together to imagine how Kingsholm could be the best it could be for everyone. Since then the group of members has grown and the vision lives on!
Building a Community
Roots was started by a group of friends from the local area with a passion for seeing Kingsholm flourish. We’re inspired by the words and actions of Jesus Christ. That means putting people first – so we hope you’ll feel valued, welcomed and right at home!
coffee & community
The Coffee Shop
Downstairs, you’ll find a coffee shop serving ethically sourced coffee and delicious, affordable locally sourced food. There is a large community table designed for big groups, or to share, plus plenty more seating. We also have a dedicated kids’ area with space for the little ones to play.
Upstairs is our coffee lounge, a lovely peaceful spot to sit and work or just relax. We have free Wi-Fi, books and board games for you to enjoy.
Zero Waste ...
New Refill Shop!
Our new zero waste refill shop has just opened around the back of our coffee shop. Through the support of a crowdfunding campaign and our local community we plan to tackle food poverty.
Food, cleaning products, and homewares are all sold at affordable prices available for everyone.
