'Coffee House' a big hit

According to the organizers and everyone who attended, the Church of the Holy Spirit's first-ever “Coffee House” on Friday evening was a total success.

The interior of the building magically was transformed into a welcoming space, complete with small tables, “coffee bean candle” centerpieces, and the soft glow of colourful Christmas lights.
