We are planning a “New Destination Lunch” for the whole Church to join in with on Sunday 3 May 2020. You are all invited to a Church Lunch with a difference. The idea is that individuals, couples & families all have lunch with each other in homes all over the Parish. We tried this in January with our families with younger children and it was a brilliant way to get to know one or two other families. The sign up form will be available from this Sunday or on our website. You can opt to host or to visit or either if you don’t mind. And we will match up hosts with guests ready for the lunch on Sunday 3 May.   Many thanks to Liz Leeson for the idea (from our Lee Abbey weekend away) and having the desire to get this up and running. We will let everyone know where they’ll be having lunch 2 weeks before. In general,  hosts are in charge of the main course and guests bring the dessert ! Any questions, please ask Liz Leeson or Helen Buick.

Here is the letter explaining the lunch and there is a printer friendly reply slip you can print off to complete.


In order to set everyone into family groupings, if possible, please sign up by Sunday 22 March.  You can sign up by completing the form and sending by email to Helen Buick children@christchurchdownend.com
