Conversations on living justly, loving mercy

and walking humbly with God

Alongside Mustard Seed Edinburgh, Soul Food hosts regular 'Soul Talk' events throughout the year - cafe style conversations with a vision to encourage and equip people to live Micah 6:8 lives. Justice is a central theme of Soul Talk, with a focus on living practically and prayerfully as we seek to follow Jesus' example of loving others, our communities and our world well.

Soul Talk guests can anticipate hearing from inspirational national and local activists, authors, artists and change-makers amongst high quality music performances, great hospitality and flowing coffee.

Upcoming Events

You are warmly invited to our March Soul Talk!


We are delighted to host guest speaker, minister, author and University lecturer Dr Sally Mann.

Sally invites you to bring your wisdom to a discussion about place and calling:


Do places have souls?

Is structural change possible in communities?

How do we handle power in a calling to the dispossessed?


Come and think through these ideas with Sally and her incredible stories of staying put when everything in your culture tells you to move up and out.

Sally is a minister at Bonny Downs Baptist Church where she is the 4th of 5 generations of her family to live in the same 4 streets - to stay put and serve in an-ever changing East-End neighbourhood. She has a PhD in Philosophy & Theology and lectures in Sociology. Sally was recently commissioned to write a new training programme in pioneering ministry for the Baptist Union. She is on the editorial board of the Journal of Missional Practice where she loves to curate stories of people doing amazing things in their communities and ask what on earth God is up to through all of it. She has written a book ‘Looking for Lydia: encounters that shape the church’ reflecting on 25 years of ministry in London through the stories of encounters in Acts. Sally is a Red Letter Christian UK trustee and spokesperson.

Doors open at 7:30pm and refreshments will be available throughout the evening. 


We don’t have any products to show here right now.
