Holy Roast! Sunday 24th January 1.30pm

For those who are otherwise alone or find it difficult to cook for themselves, we are reaching out to the Benefice and beyond to offer friendship and companionship over a cooked meal. On Sunday 24th January we will be serving a "Holy Roast" in the Schoolroom at 1.30pm.
We can cater for 20 people so you need to book to secure your place. If you know of anyone in the local community that this applies to or would appreciate this please extend this invitation to them and ask them to ring Kathy on 543607 or Su on 825877 to book their meal.

"The time is Sunday, don’t be alone
The Forest church is your home from home
Sue and Kathy will be your host
So come on up for the Holy Roast
Have some fun and eat your fill
The great thing is – there is no bill !!!!"

Lunch will be served at 1.30pm so come and share with us
We hope to seat 20 people so booking is essential to secure your place.
