Sunday Lunches at St Andrew's:
Sunday lunches are enjoyed throughout the year and are an important part of our outreach here at St Andrew's. Each month ( usually first Sunday) a three course roast lunch is offered for the cost of £6. Between 70-90 attend each month and up to half of the people joining us are not part of our congregation at St Andrew’s but hopefully feel welcomed by our hospitality and enjoy sharing a meal with others.
The lunch operates in a very informal and relaxed setting with many people helping to set up and clear away afterwards.
Recently, we have had the benefit of the new oven which has made a big difference in preparing the meal, with the meat now often going in to cook late on the Saturday evening freeing up space for the potatoes and other vegetables, resulting in us being prepared sooner, which in turn hopefully is resulting in the dinners getting out to each table slightly quicker and warmer!
If you haven't ever come along to a lunch, do give it a try sometime, please sign up on the chapter house notice board, the list goes up about two weeks prior, it's been great to see some new people come along this year.
If you are a regular at the lunch and feel that maybe you could help in any way please do offer your support maybe setting up, serving, clearing up washing tea towels/tablecloths would along with any support be much appreciated.
