About the Big Breakfast at Lyndon Methodist Church
Since the inception of the “The Big” event covering Breakfast, Afternoon Tea and Supper as a means of celebrating in the faith of God over a shared meal – following the Holy Habits theme, Lyndon now has a thriving regular “Big Breakfast” one Saturday in every month.
We regularly have in excess of 40 diners who come along to Big Breakfast and enjoy great food – Full English if you like – fellowship and a time reflection. Our guests do not come from within our own congregation but from the slimming club that has two sessions at our church every Saturday morning, those who attend our Tea & Toast for those who miss loved ones and people from our local community. Each session sees new faces and has helped Lyndon to reach out to the community and hopefully is influencing people to think about crossing the threshold into the church.
Details and Timings
A dedicated team of cooks helps and servers ensure a constant supply of full on cholesterol for the heart unhealthy as well as catering for those who are on diets or specific dietary regimes. It requires preparation on the day which has now got into a smooth operation with setting up from 07.30 till we serve our first breakfast from 10.00am until 12.00 noon. We have invested in chafing dishes to enable people to help themselves according to their appetite with mouth watering delicacies as eggs, bacon, sausage, fried bread, mushrooms, tomatoes, black pudding, baked beans and hash browns. Cereals or fruit is available along with homemade jam and marmalade too smooth onto toast. Tea, coffee and fruit juice is also available and so makes a wonderful time to relax, enjoy food and wonderful fellowship.
In keeping with our faith, we do not charge for the breakfast, rather we ask people for donations. Donations can come in many forms such as money, Christmas themed gifts for our Christmas Fayre, or if people feel so driven to offer both. We cover our costs and return to church funds valuable revenue for God’s work. So, if you are passing on any of the following Saturdays and fancy a bite to eat with a good dose of fellowship drop in for a munch and a chat you will be more than welcome.
