Starting on Thursday the 27th January is our new community initiative, our weekly community lunch!
We will be working alongside our dear friends at Working Together (Ludlow) who are also based in the Rockspring Centre. They will be providing a delicious vegetarian meal for us each week - their food is excellent!
This is very much part of our renewed vision, to be ambassadors of hope within the community, offering friendship, help and support where needed.
Many have paid a great price during the pandemic, having experienced loneliness, isolation, bereavement and lack of meaningful social contact with others. Now that we can meet again, it is time to help one another heal, gain confidence and renew our hope as we move on from the whole pandemic experience.
Below are some of the comments we have received so far:
"I wouldn't miss the community lunch for the world! It's far better for me to come out than be stuck in the house all week."
"So good to see you all today. We enjoyed it a lot. Thank you."
"It's getting to be a really nice group of people."
"Thank you for inviting us to the community lunch. This is the first invite out of the house we have had since March 2020."
"The food is absolutely excellent!"
"It's just so nice to be able to come out and smile again."
We are currently in discussion with another church in the town and hope to roll out a fuller outreach to the community in the coming months!
