SHARING: Bishop Grandison with one of the diners
ONE CHURCH that has been spreading some Christmas cheer is the Chrisma Christian Centre [CCC] in Woolwich, south east London.
Volunteers from the church organised a Christmas dinner fit for a king for the homeless. Over 43 people from across south London turned up to enjoy good food, receive specially bought gifts and enjoy fellowship with Christians wanting to demonstrate Christ’s love for humanity.
Bishop Claion Grandison, leader of CCC said: “The response was fantastic. The people who came were grateful and appreciative and as a church we are building friendship with people. We get to minister to people on a different level, and are learning how to reach out and embrace people.”
This is the third dinner for the homeless that CCC has organised in recent months, and as a result of their outreach, they’ve received support from local businesses and organisations who have donated food and gifts.
