Christmas Day Lunch
Plans are now well under way to provide, as we did last year, a Christmas Lunch on Christmas Day itself for those within our church family and wider afield in our community who would otherwise be on their own on this most special of days.
As last year, we are wanting to invite those who have nowhere else to go on Christmas day and who will be on their own, either as individuals or as a couple.
If you know that this applies to you or you are aware of anyone who may well benefit from this, please would you let Keith or Jill in the church office know as soon as possible as there will be a limit on the numbers that we can cater for.
If you feel that you would like to support this venture, there are some practical things you could do to help:
Remember the event and all the preparation etc in your prayers.
Make a donation towards the cost of the lunch.
Help move chairs and set up tables etc, after the Christmas morning service has finished.
Be willing to pick up guests and bring them to church or be available to take people home later on.
Be on hand for a while when guests arrive to chat and make them feel welcome and at home.
If you'd like more details, please speak to Keith ASAP! (01420) 83167
