Time for soup!

  Filed under: Ministries 

Dear church family, 

We are excited to announce that Souper Friday will be opening up for soup/roll/tea/coffee as it originally started back in January 2020. For obvious reasons this promising start was cut short by Covid, you know the rest…

Guided by the Stripe Team, we have decided it is time to begin serving a soup lunch again and opening up the church hall for anybody who would love to come, share some food, have a cup of coffee and a chat with those of us who love Jesus.

Although we are really looking forward to starting this up again there are practical issues to be resolved. Mainly the need for volunteers to help run this event every Friday.

We still plan to continue with a small number of deliveries and have our ‘market stall’ open, whilst at the same time there will be refreshments available. Nearer lunchtime we will offer soup and a roll, finishing up at around 1 pm.

What needs to be done?

  • Help with set up from about 8am.
  • Help with food packing (market stall). 
  • Providing soup.
  • Serve in the kitchen with refreshments/washing up. 
  • Sit in the coffee hall being available to chat with those who would like some company and a listening ear. 
  • Help with tidying up at the end of the morning.

If you feel that there is something here you could help with, for an hour or so or more, then please contact: 

Colin W, Esther A, Joan C or Jo S. 

We are praying that as God has used the Souper Friday food distribution over the last 18 months, that he will continue to bless this ministry, and that many will be drawn closer to him. Thank you.
