Our story

Tubestation is a community that nurtures connection between all people, creating a space where everyone is invited to connect with faith through Jesus.

Our vision is to build a community that is connected, creative and inclusive.

In the early 2000s, a little group of absolute golden oldies met regularly in Polzeath Methodist chapel to pray and dream about what the space could become. They imagined how fresh ways of expressing church and community could support and serve everyone who came through the door.  In 2006 Tubestation was founded, a Christ-centred community, living by the sea.

Connected.

Tubestation wants to discover and explore God together, a God who is beyond anyone’s imagination or knowledge. We are committed to going on this journey of listening and learning together.


Community.

Tubestation is an inclusive Christ-centred community. We are passionate about curating spaces for questions and conversation. We want everyone to find belonging and safety, and to flourish in every circumstance life throws at us!

 

Creative.

Tubestation is a place that celebrates creativity through skating, surfing, swimming, faith, food, art, and music. Creativity is an expression of the Spirit of our Creator God.

Sunday Gathering: 10:00, Polzeath
Gathering every Sunday is one way that we can connect with the local and global community of Jesus-followers. Our Sunday Gatherings include a time of singing together, and learning from the Bible, and someone might share their knowledge in the form of a short talk. Our Story Sundays are a time when everyone is welcomed to share 'up-the-front': life experiences, songs, prayers, jokes, poems, dances, spoken-word... Come as you are. All ages are welcome at our Sunday Gatherings. Sometimes children will participate in their own activities, but will usually join in with the whole group. While our cafe isn't always open with the usual menu on a Sunday, free tea and coffee, and a biccie or two are always on hand for before, during or after our Sunday Gathering.

Thursday Prayer: 11:00, Polzeath
We meet at Tubestation on Thursday mornings. We pray for Cornwall, for our world, and for each other. Our Pastoral Leads can offer spiritual support and prayer to those who need it, including those who can’t easily access the Tubestation venue at Polzeath.
Home Groups
As well as meeting as a whole church every week in Polzeath, we also meet in smaller groups in people’s homes. There are currently home groups running in St Columb Major, Wadebridge and Delabole. Home groups might share meals together, chat about a certain issue or topic relating to faith, surf together, go on walks or help out at Foodbanks and local charities… each home group is a reflection of the unique people who make it up!

Cafe

Tubestation is the result of some big dreams and a lot of hard work. It’s been a space for good food, good coffee and good chats, ever since 2006.

Our cafe food is simple, hot and hearty, and all made right here in the Tubestation kitchen. Our menu includes gluten-free and vegan options. (You’re also welcome to bring your own packed lunch.)

Tubestation runs a pay-it-forward scheme, so if you do fancy a hot dish or a cuppa, come in, grab a ticket and tuck in.

We use Foundation coffee, a Cornish roaster that produces single-origin, traceable (and pretty delish) coffee beans.

Free Wi-Fi, big sofas, big wood burner, dogs welcome, half-pipe skate ramp. (The ramp can get noisy, so bring some earplugs if you’re after a quiet and productive day on the laptop!)

Open:

Monday - Saturday

10:00 - 16:00
