Lent lunches 2018

The Lent lunches will be held at Christ Church (in the church) on 19 February, 26 February and         5 March and in St Andrew's Church Hall on 12 March, 19 March and 26 March from 12.30 to 1.45 pm.

These are relaxed occasions to meet friends and enjoy soup, bread, cheese, pate, fruit, tea or coffee during Lent, in support of Christian charities. 

There is no need to book and these events are free of charge - come along to share food and fellowship and donate (if you wish) to the two charities we have chosen this year, which are:

  • the Bishop’s Lent Appeal: enabling local mission in Simbai, a remote community in Papua New Guinea, where the church building is the community hub by:
    • extending the church, by developing a larger church building

    • enabling youthwork

    • resourcing people, including a couple from Norfolk who are in their second year of living and working with the people of Simbai

  • Tearfund: a Christian charity which helps communities around the world escape the very worst effects of poverty and disaster by offering them life-saving assistance to help them recover quickly and be better equipped to face future hazards.
