Held on the 2nd Thursday of each month, expect to see the ground floor of the building be transformed into a community dining hall. The long table will be set with a capacity of 40 people so make sure you book early to confirm a seat. The meal will change each month and will be based on traditional recipes from community members.  Bring a friend or come chat to a stranger.

When: 12 Midday every 2nd Thursday of the month

How Much: A donation of $15 per person to cover food cast and support programs within LCMS. This includes lunch served in our 3 layered tiffins, tea & coffee and fresh fruit. Card payment available on the day.
