‘Five Loaves and Two Fishes,’ an extension of the Hamilton Seventh Day Adventist Church’s community service department, have planned a luncheon to be held at the Hamilton Seventh Day Adventist Church on King Street from 1 pm – 3pm on Christmas Day, December 25. The event has been organised so that as many as 200 families will be able to dine on a
delicious Christmas meal in the spacious church hall.
Learning that the church needed a partner to make the special luncheon a reality, CableVision stepped in to sponsor the event, donating funds to buy the food. CableVision employees have eagerly volunteered to assist the church members in serving the meals. The luncheon will feature a traditional Bermuda Christmas menu with turkey and all the trimmings, savoury vegetarian dishes, and an assortment of desserts.
CableVision’s General Manager, Terry Roberson, explains: “Christmas is all about giving, and in that spirit, we were delighted to come together with the Hamilton Seventh Day Adventist Church to host this special luncheon. We hope all the families who attend will enjoy the delightful meal that is being planned and the warm holiday welcome that will be extended to all.”
Miss Gina Coddington, organiser of the event, says: “In this economic climate where many are out of work or experiencing financial difficulties, we want to express the Christmas spirit that God demonstrated by sending His Son to save this world. ‘Five Loaves and Two Fishes’ is pleased to team up with CableVision to invite families in need to come and enjoy this wonderful Christmas lunch.”
Volunteers and interested persons who wish to find out more or reserve a space are invited to phone the church office at 292-4276.
