Households across the Diocese of Gloucester will be celebrating this Easter Sunday with a special meal, sponsored and delivered by their local church or worshipping community.
1124 delicious shepherd’s pies or gardener’s pies with lamb or lentils and topped with mini roast potatoes will be delivered to doorways in the coming week, complete with a hot cross bun from Hobbs House Bakery.
Across the Diocese of Gloucester, communities have chosen the best way to show their care in their local situation. From students to families whose children would usually have free school meals, to people who might be on their own or simply to create a sense of community togetherness, the ideas have been so creative.
Some communities are including Easter eggs and some are including other little treats with the meals. When the Comfort and Joy project ran at Christmas, people who got the meals were delighted not only with the delicious meals, cooked by The Long Table, but also by the smiling faces and the kindness of the volunteers who brought them, as they reached out to share the love of Jesus with their communities.
Ruth Fitter will be speaking to Richard Atkins on BBC Radio Glos this Sunday. Listen in to hear more about how it’s working in Gloucester.
