FEAST – A table of food, story and nourishment!

On the first Sunday of the month from 6pm, we gather together for dinner, and bring food and stories to share around a simple Communion.

Each month a special guest or member of the community is invited to share an aspect of their story, or a theme is chosen to discuss.

A family friendly and inclusive space where everyone is welcomed to the table for stories, conversation and a shared communion.

We gather in the foyer of Adamstown Uniting Church and eat together at one long table. We set the table at 6pm and finish around 7.15pm.

Please bring a simple plate of food to contribute to the shared meal.
