Thanet Churches Open Christmas – 2017

Open Christmas is a celebration of Christmas organised by the Church in Thanet each year.

If you are interested in finding out more and either volunteering to help or donating to this worthy cause please visit the Thanet Churches Open Christmas website. Below is an extract from their website:

“The aim is to provide a delicious lunchtime meal and some Christmas cheer for all in the local community who would like to attend. So there is food and company available for any who would otherwise find it difficult to have such a celebration over Christmas.

Thanet churches work on the organising committee for the event. During the week of Open Christmas they are supported by a team of volunteers from local churches and from the wider community.

The event has been running since 1997. Last year around 130 meals were served daily, with perhaps 20 volunteers involved at each meal”
