I'm so excited about The Gathering's Soup Kitchen returning tomorrow, it's been sorely missed by our regulars and the need is greater than ever.

Also thanks to a generous neighbour we've been able to buy a bit more chicken than usual so together with these beautifully roasted onions it's going to be a delicious soup!

We've also made a responsible plan for how the Soup Kitchen will operate to be compliant with rules on social distancing and crowds gathering, so it should be a great time serving the community again.

We've also been blessed by a number of friends who have made us some face masks for those serving and some have been collecting yogurt pots and ice cream tubs which we'll be using to serve the soup in.

Sadly we won't be allowing any of our regulars to sit inside to enjoy the soup, once served their pot we'll be asking them to go straight home, so we'll miss out on our usual interactions and outreach opportunities, but the need for food simply outweighs anything else and as a church we're just happy to be back serving.

We've been really blessed with the number of pots and tubs we have and can use as many as we can get.
