There were fun and games and face painting for the children, a Gospel band and choir and lively music added to the camaraderie of the occasion.
Along with other members of Churches Together in Orpington, myself and Roni Brand from Holy Innocents' assisted in manning the BBQ stall.
It was a packed event and a lovely time for "Feeding Jesus' lambs and sheep."
At this BBQ we gave away approximately 600 rolls, burghers and sausages, many drinks including tea and coffee for a full 3 hours. All the food and drinks were donated by the Churches and given out freely to all those who queued up. The first 300 rolls were donated by Holy Innocents. But further supplies had to be sought to feed the queues!
When collecting the Holy Innocents' order in the morning we told the baker that they were for Churches Together in Orpington and invited her to attend. We had a few strange looks from other customers as our trolley was piled high with nothing but rolls!
Bob and I prayed over the rolls that those who ate them would be blessed and think about Jesus and His message.
Father Victor and many others from Holy Innocents' came to enjoy the festivities and it was a great time.
The weather stayed clement which helped! Some members of Churches Together went amongst the crowd to speak about Jesus and His message.
