Breakfast - 9.30 (3rd Sun)

On the 3rd Sunday of the month, we serve breakfast from 9.30 until 10.10.

It is normally a cooked breakfast, but sometimes continental. We find it is a fantastic chance to chat and develop friendships before the worship.

We always appreciate help with setting up and clearing away – we are a family. There is normally a pot where voluntary money contributions towards the cost can be placed.

 

 

Lunch - 1.30 (1st Sun)

We love to eat and talk together. The 1st Sunday of each month is our Hope Community Lunch is a chance both for the church family to eat together and to bring friends and family who may not want to come to the worship.

  • It is normally a full cooked (2 course) meal.
  • There is a pot for voluntary money contributions.
  • Help is always appreciated in setting up and putting away, but be our guest first time!
  • We normally have some games (eg board games / snooker / outside) for children and young people.
