For most people, the Christmas season means time with family and friends, exchanging gifts and enjoying a festive meal together. However, for some people, the Christmas holiday is not a joyful experience. Many people do not have the financial resources to meet day-to-day needs, so a festive meal is beyond their imagination.
Since 2007, churches and Christians across the Barnet borough have been offering a FREE festive hamper, full of all the essential ingredients to enjoy a full, tasty Christmas lunch for people who are struggling financially.
There’s no cost. Ever. It’s simply our way to celebrate God’s gift of Jesus to the world. Because we’ve been given so much, we want to give to those who desperately need it. While we call it “Christmas Lunch on Jesus,” we don’t limit these gift hampers to Christians or people of any particular religion or faith. We just want to share God’s love in a tangible way.We are now covering a few areas beyond Barnet and hope to grow across the UK over the next few years.
To sign up to receive a hamper, simply go to the locations page by clicking here, to see if see if Christmas Lunch on Jesus serves your area. You can also call 020 8438 8285 to make further enquiries. This Christmas, our prayer is that your stomach will be filled—as well as your heart.
