MINEHEAD COMMUNITY SUPPER
You are warmly invited to the relaunch of our Community Supper on
Wednesday 15th November at The Beach Hotel.
Come and share with us a delicious two course supper giving you the
opportunity to see what we offer at our community meal. This normally
takes place on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month between 5pm and
6pm and is attended by those who have been given a free meal voucher by
local support agencies thereby giving them the opportunity to engage with
others and enjoy a heart-warming healthy supper in pleasant surroundings.
To enable us to offset these costs we encourage the general public
to join us at this time and donate £5.00 for their supper.
West Somerset Food Cupboard December 2017
Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 10,020 Food parcels so far this year - 1952
This is the last newsletter of 2017 and what a year it has been! We have been exceptionally busy and the need for food parcels certainly doesn't show signs of decreasing in the foreseeable future.
This December has been a very busy month. I am very grateful to all the volunteers who worked so hard and to Jill Bray who came out of retirement to help with the Christmas preparations while I was away for my son's graduation. I must say thank you to all of you who have collection boxes and deliver goods to us on a regular basis as well as all those who have made extra donations for Christmas.
As always those who receive the parcels have been very appreciative. Over the month of December over 250 boxes and bags have been delivered to clients which is an amazing total and clearly indicative of the need that there is. It also takes us over 10,000 parcels since the Food Cupboard was started!
Currently we have a good stock of most foodstuffs, thanks to the generosity of all those who donate to us. We would welcome small jars of coffee, tins of cold meats, and jams or similar spreads so that we can make sure boxes have a good variety of foods and beverages. As we begin 2018 I have a couple of dates booked to speak to community groups about the work we do and I am happy to do more if the opportunity arises.

Minehead Street Pastors:
In November, we were delighted to have a visit from Justin the Archbishop of Canterbury who has launched a programme of Renewal and Reform in the Church of England.
The Archbishop met with the 6th Form at West Somerset College for a Question & Answer session and then with all of the School Pastors.
Will you Join us?
School and Street Pastors are fully trained volunteers from all the churches of Minehead. It is drawing us closer together through prayer and action.
We are always looking for more people. Why not come along as an Observer to see what it is like?
