BOXING DAY COMMUNITY DINNER
For over fifteen years St Paul's has provided a free Christmas lunch on Boxing Day to people in the local community. This wonderful event offers a place of warm welcome and a hearty meal for those who would otherwise be alone at Christmas.
Last year St Paul's welcomed over 100 people for the lunch. The day begins with Eucharist at 10am. Guests are welcomed from 12noon and we end our celebrations around 4pm.
The lunch is generously donated by The Landmark Hotel, Marylebone and the vegetable-chopping, decorating, hospitality, hosting and washing-up are done by an amazing team of volunteers (you can volunteer here). Our Church School, Christ Church Bentinck CE Primary School, collects & wraps small gifts for all our guests. A local hairdresser offers free haircuts and we enjoy carol singing and games together.
If you would like to attend the meal please email the office for a free ticket.
If you would like to make a donation to support costs of the meal, offer gifts for our guests or volunteer to help, please email the office.
