Title: Being Neighbour: It’s called Dinner Church. Produced by Lutherans Toronto, August 29, 2019. 4.40 minutes. – “Martin Luther Church invites their neighbours to mid-week worship, built around conversation and a meal. For some it’s an alternative to Sunday worship and for some it’s a chance to braid the week together at church and enjoy a relaxed time in community.”

We are proud to announce that Dinner Church will benefit from a grant given by the ELCIC Women of Faith Fund. We look forward to developing this fellowship around food, especially with the help of Hannah Johnston who worked on Dinner Church as community coordinator at St. Lydia church in Brooklyn, New York.
