One of the things I've lost since attending three congregations, is regularly having lunch with people after church ... it was easier to do when we had just one Sunday meeting!
And yet there is something about eating together that helps us to connect.
So throughout June we hope to encourage RFCers to eat together on a Sunday; For the 9 o'clockers to have brunch together (coffee & toast?), the 11am to have lunch (soup & rolls?) and the 6pm guys to have tea together before church (coffee & crumpets?).
Alternatively you could eat together midweek before lifegroup or as a serving team or even have a picnic lunch after toddler group.
If we try to keep the emphasis on simple meals together (rather than fine dining!) hopefully that will make it easier to be involved.
For many of us this will be a helpful reminder to continue in something you already know & do, but for me its a provocation to get back to it.
Eating together is one of those things we want to keep front and centre as we look to get to know people into our church.
