Things are getting exciting at The Gathering as we prepare for our three festive Soup Kitchens, beginning tomorrow.

We'll be serving 200 litres of home made Pea & Ham Soup. As well as serving our regulars with the usual packet of instant noodles, each recipient will receive a yummy home baked cookie, and the school age kids will each get a goodie bag containing a few school supplies together with a some sweets.

In total we have 120 goodie bags, and we expect most of these to be given away tomorrow. We also have 320 cookies, all lovingly baked, iced and packaged by Delena, who also facilitates our Homework Club.

We are so very thankful for our faithful supporters in Blighty who have helped to make this a reality again this year, especially St Andrew's in Oxshott who have gone above & beyond in their support!

We are a little sad that once again we can't offer our sit-down Christmas meal to our Soup Kitchen regulars, but through the pandemic and beyond, our Soup Kitchen has grown massively, and until we have our building (please LORD!), we simply don't have the space to accommodate that many people. In faith we're believing that next year we will once again be able to go all out with a fantastic Christmas lunch for everyone.
