Cheadle Parish Church
(11-15 November 1964)
Ticket for the 'Barge Inn'. The name of the group had been changed to the crossBeaTs, but did not make the publicity
| The "Barge Inn" was one of the first, if not
the first, of the Christian Coffee bars
that were to become so popular as a means of Christian outreach in the 1960s.
It was certainly the first one that we "identified" as the new form of
evangelism. We always looked back to the "Barge Inn" as being the start
of it all.

|I had an e-mail from Paul Tavernor in August 2006 which sheds a little extra light on the Barge Inn (and a few other things). Click his name to read it. Also see an e-mail from Alison Elliot.|

the time of the 'Barge Inn' - and never used owing to the likeness to 'waifs
and strays' !
