Ilkley church to host Christmas Day lunch for those alone
For the past 3 years, Ilkley Baptist Church on Kings Road have hosted the Churches Together Ilkley Christmas Day Lunch for those who ‘for one reason or another’ wouldn’t normally bother.
Their idea is that if you are alone on Christmas Day, or unable to cook, or can’t afford the expense of a traditional Christmas meal, you can join them and enjoy the food and fellowship.
A spokesperson for the church said: ‘Christmas should be a time of sharing with family and friends. We are just friends you haven’t met yet!’
The meal is open to all, starts at 1pm, and you do not have to be a Christian to attend. There is no cost for the meal, but they are limited to 20 persons, so you need to let them know if you would like to attend.
