Friday Food

Home » News » Friday Food

The October 9th AMC Church Council will be considering a proposal, 'FRIDAY FOOD', to use our Welcome Space to provide a warm welcome and hot nutritious meal to rough sleepers and other vulnerable adults in our community. This would start in November, initially until March 2020 (and then to be reviewed), and would happen at 6pm on a Friday evening for about 90 minutes. It is an important and necessary service to some of the most disadvantaged people in our community. But we don't want FRIDAY FOOD to be a project for just a handful of people. We want everyone at AMC to get behind FRIDAY FOOD in some way.

We will gratefully appreciate the prayerful support of everyone. In addition, we need four people each Friday (on a rota basis) to act as stewards to make it happen and, at this stage, we need an indication of which people might be willing to be part of this team (no fixed commitment is needed until after a meeting in September giving more detail). Men of working age are being actively sought to be the backbone of the stewards (because that is the demographic of our rough sleepers) but we are not being ageist or sexist here — all are welcome to help. After the Church Council meeting, assuming the proposal is accepted, we will be asking for people to come forward to volunteer to prepare the meals beforehand.

We have eight men on the list of potential volunteers already. Could you be part of that crucial team?

Please let me know, by contacting me (Karen) on 07762 876544, or leaving your name and contact number with one of the people in the office and asking them to pass your details on to me.

Thank you for your prayers and we look forward to hearing from you.
