Open House!

On the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, Open House invites the people of Riverside for lunch. Hosted by Mark & Sara Willott and Donna Solomon & Gill Adams, this is a free event that takes place from 1 – 3pm at Riverside House, and everyone is invited!

The vision for Open House is that it would be:

Þ Led by community groups, for the community.

Þ A chance to eat together and to get to know people in the wider community.

Þ A place of welcome for newcomers.

Þ Sharing our lives by cooking our normal Sunday lunch, but for more people!

Þ Currently held on alternate weeks, this could grow if other community groups get involved.

Þ Cooking together, eating together, washing up together… family!

So far lunches have been a huge success and there has been a lot of positive feedback…

 “Over the past few months I have been to several Open House lunches at Riverside House.” says Philip Morgan. “Completely free of charge, anybody is invited, and there is always a real sense of generous hospitality and community at these events.  The food is always healthy and excellently prepared, and I really appreciate the time to socialize with other Christians of all ages and backgrounds. Open House lunches are always really enjoyable.  Long may they continue!”
