The Gathering and Sunday Supper @ Bridgeway Dave and Pat are volunteer pioneers. They have demonstrated how serving the needs of the community and being unafraid to test ideas leads to deep relationships in Christian community. Dave has been involved in developing local ministry around the subject of food for several years, beginning with a foodbank and community café, which developed into Sunday Supper. The vision for Sunday Supper began with a few Christians meeting every Sunday evening at Pat’s house. “A few Christians were meeting every Sunday evening at my house for a shared meal, chat, worship, and prayers. I would open the door and welcome whoever arrived, and somehow, we always had enough food, and folk would stay to pray and sing. We used the Youth Alpha materials which prompted good discussion and we prayed for our friends and neighbours. A Summer barbeque attracted fourteen people, who we had prayed for over the years”.
