"Reaching out to Seniors in our Community"
The Seniors' Outreach Tea is held on the fourth Tuesday of the month, from January to June, and also in September, October and November. Seniors from various care facilities in the surrounding area, from the SOS Support Group, as well as individual seniors from our congregation, meet in our church hall for an enjoyable afternoon of entertainment and fellowship while enjoying coffee, tea, sandwiches and sweets.
We have been blessed to have the most dedicated core of volunteers: those who donate food; those who come to help at the Tea; those who arrange our entertainment and those who provide the entertainment. There is always a cheerful, upbeat attitude which leaves everyone smiling. We are delighted to welcome new volunteers to come and help set up for the Tea, meet and greet our visitors, provide sandwiches or squares, or to help clean up.
The Seniors' Outreach Tea is an event that feeds and nourishes, both volunteers and participants, in more ways than one. It is very rewarding to see the smiles and hear the sincere thanks expressed by our visitors.
