300+ join 3 churches to celebrate the BIG LUNCH

On 7th June 2015, over 300 people joined members from St Andrew's URC, Wesley Methodists and St Luke's C of E in the King George V Memorial Park, Eldon Square for the free community BIG Lunch, provided by the three Churches. The aim was for the churches to be seen to be at the Heart of our local community and to enable neighbours to meet with and share with each other.

By all reports the event was a great success and enjoyed by everyone as chef Darren Foster served up a delicious Bar B Que , whilst church members privided a fantastic selection of cakes and pastries.
It really was an amazing sight.

A number of local people wanted to make a contribution towards the free lunch and a total of over £175.00 will now be sent to Christian Aid’s for the Earthquake Disaster Appeal for Nepal.

The three churches thanks everyone who attended and to all those who made the day so very special.

In July 2014, Wesley and St Andrew's members held their first BIG LUNCH when around 200 people attended.
