City Care Lunch
In 2010, a member of our church made a suggestion: let’s not keep talking about serving the marginalised, let’s just do something.
We did. And from that has grown a Sunday lunch that happens six times a year for over 100 men and women who live on the margins: economically, psychologically, socially and culturally.
The idea is simple. Church Hill puts on a big barbecue with steaks, gourmet salads and tasty desserts, and we sit with our guests and talk. There are clothes and toiletries to take, provided you get in quick. It’s a practical and meaningful way of sharing the gospel of Jesus. In recent years of course, we've had to make adjustments to how we serve due to COVID-19, but thankfully have been able to continue to provide at least a takeaway lunch.
In 2022, we’re also running Bible and Breakfast. We invite the homeless community who live near church to join us for bacon, eggs, juice and a short devotion from the gospels, on the Tuesday mornings following each lunch.
A weekly Wednesday night Dinner and Bible Study group have also been meeting since 2021.
