When people meet together in church, there is often an expression of worship that results in practical action. It is not difficult to see that in our community, there is social inequality and food poverty. There are many who are unemployed, sanctioned, existing on universal credit, on low incomes, or have long term disabilities… Jesus taught a rich young man to sell everything he had and give it to the poor, if he wanted to find the Kingdom of God and he went away disappointed because he had great wealth. Jesus also told the story of the Good Samaritan and the type of hospitality we should be willing to offer to those we meet on the road

In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus says,

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me.” Matthew 25:35–36 …and we are just trying to follow in his footsteps.
