As we reconnect with friends and family, let’s not forget to reach out and bless the disadvantaged, isolated and distressed who have been and continue to be severely impacted by the pandemic.
Eat Share Connect is a communal outreach centred around table fellowship. Table fellowship was also Jesus’ way of connecting with the marginalised. He went against the traditions of His time by eating, sharing and connecting with the ostracised and outcasts as well as with ordinary folks. He unconditionally accepted all, tearing down social boundaries and relating to them as equals.
As a Methodist family, Eat Share Connect to build a more inclusive community for the poor and disadvantaged.
Eat Share Connect provides a platform for the Methodists to connect with low income families or the socially isolated over a meal around a dining table – a place to gather, celebrate, connect, bless as well as to share our troubles and brokenness.
