Boxing Day Community Lunch
Sunday 26 December 2021
For over fifteen years St Paul's has provided a free Christmas lunch on Boxing Day welcoming hundreds of people from the local community.
This wonderful day offers a place of warm welcome and a hearty meal for those who would otherwise be alone over the Christmas season.
The day begins with a service of Holy Communion at 10am as we celebrate the Christmas season and mark St Stephen's Day.
Guests are welcomed from 12.30pm for the Christmas lunch and festivities,
and we conclude our celebrations around 4pm.
The Christmas meal is generously donated by a number of local businesses and the vegetable-chopping, decorating, hospitality, hosting and washing-up are done by an amazing team of volunteers. We even offer free Christmas haircuts in a separate room in the church, courtesy of wonderful hairdresser, Michael!
