Mid week Cafe

Unfortunately we are no longer able to open our Lunch Cafe since the opening of the new Ayr Academy school building. The pupils are now too far away to walk to our cafe for lunch. 

We are now expanding our outreach to make contact with the young people at lunchtimes out at the new school location.


Each Wednesday afternoon from 12pm - 2pm during term time, The Ark opens it’s doors to the local community, providing lunches at very reasonable prices. Mainly attended by young people from the local secondary school, we also welcome individuals and groups who pop in to say hello and for a good meal or snack before continuing with their day.

The Midweek Cafe gives The Ark the opportunity to not only reach out to our local community as a whole, but also to foster new and existing relationships with even more young people. For some young people, it is another opportunity in the week to catch up and build relationships and for others, Wednesday is the only day in which we get the opportunity to engage with them and try to make a positive impact on their lives.

As of October 2013 our Lunch Cafe is now open on Thursdays as well! This is something we'd always hoped we'd be able to do, and now, thanks to our wonderful volunteers, we are able to do so! Pop in between 12.15pm and 1pm for some tasty food and snacks.
