Festive cheer on the menu

ROAST dinner was on the table but making sure people stayed connected to the community was also on the menu at Warrnambool Uniting Church’s annual Christmas lunch.

In a true reflection of the season, the church last week served up its Christmas fare to a big crowd of about 120 people — more than double the usual number of diners — at its regular Wednesday community lunch.

Reverend Geoff Barker said the regular community lunch was part of the church’s aim to be inclusive. 

“We try and create a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere,” Reverend Barker said.

“People can make friends and be supportive of each other.”
