Summer BBQs—Friday nights

We make it really simple for the host…guests bring some meat for the barbeque,
something to share in the way of salad, bread and drink, their own plates and
cutlery. This is a really easy way to gather and mix in a relaxed setting, have
some fun as a family and make firm friends.
Contact Janice if you would like information about where the Barbeque is this
Friday. We are also looking for homes to host each week—contact the office or
