Prai'lude Café is part of the La Prairie Church's program. In the desire for holistic service, the church was expanded and renovated with the vision to be a true place of life throughout the week.
The café is open afternoons for people who suffer from loneliness or are in a spiritual search. The Prai'lude Café was opened to allow meetings for the many activities that are organized at the café (gymnastics, knitting, cooking/pastry workshop, mandala, mycology workshop, English). Themed evenings are also organized and the café is open the first Saturday of the month.

The opening hours of the café are from Tuesday to Friday from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm with an extension until 10:00 pm on Friday evening. Additional openings depend on events in the church.
