EAT  SHARE  CONNECT

Organised by the Methodist Welfare Services

2020 marks the 135th anniversary of The Methodist Church in Singapore. To commemorate the milestone, the Methodist Welfare Services is organising the Eat Share Connect movement, a communal dining outreach to bless the community.

The dining table is one of the most important places where people connect, share, celebrate and bless others. It is also a place where brokenness and restoration are experienced.

Table fellowship was Jesus’ way of connecting with the marginalised. He went against the traditions of His time by eating, sharing and connecting with ordinary folks, the Gentiles, outcasts and the poor. By doing this, He tore down social boundaries and divisions by relating to them as equals around the dining table.

“When you give a banquet, invite the poor … you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” Luke 14:13-14 (NIV)

Take the step to befriend a family trapped in poverty. When we make intentional efforts to understand their circumstances, it shows that we genuinely care and also respect their needs and challenges.

Date: February 26 to May 30
