During our Advent course last year, we studied “An Unlikely Advent” by Rachel Billups, who shared a heart-warming initiative she started in her home, fostering community, extending a welcome to newcomers, and offering support to those who found themselves alone.

Inspired by this, I’d like to introduce a similar tradition here. I propose a Friday Night Supper at the vicarage, scheduled for the final Friday of each month (until the end of June initially).

The vision for this evening is one of genuine and relaxed camaraderie. While we encourage a bring-and-share approach for those who can contribute, the core focus lies on extending invitations, providing a warm welcome, and fostering hospitality.

My prayer is that this event becomes an inviting space, particularly for newcomers. It offers a wonderful opportunity for us to connect, share stories, and build meaningful relationships.

If you would like to know more, are interested in attending or would like to be part of a welcome team, click here to let me know.

  • I would be interested.
    Of course I can bring some food, savoury or sweet.
    Do we have to belong to the church to join?

    • Thank you for your message via the website. You are more than welcome on Friday 26th, and no, you certainly don’t need to be a member of the church to come come along!

      Let me know if you need any more details.

      Warm regards,

      Jenni (Gibson)
      Chaplaincy Assistant

      • I will be attending and let you know a couple of days before what I will bring.
        It is on Friday 25/01 isn’t it?
        Thanks in advance for your reply!
