Norwich church to mark Easter by feeding homeless
A Norwich church is set to mark Easter this year by feeding homeless people in Norwich city centre.
Members from the Redeemed Christian Church of God, based at The Chapel on Dussindale, plan to spend Easter Sunday evening (April 1) feeding anyone who visits its stall at the Haymarket in Norwich from 5 to 7pm.
The church feeds around 35 homeless adults at the Haymarket every Sunday evening and has done so for the past four years.
Pastor Chioma Onyeme said: “On Easter Day we will provide food for all people who struggle to afford a meal. Church members who have donated generously towards the event will be on hand to serve the general public assorted cooked food and non-alcoholic drinks along with hot beverages. This is in fulfilment of one of our tenants of faith - the relief of poverty.
“There will be also be moderate live music at the event and plenty of fun dancing, Nigerian Gospel style.
Pastor Chioma said: “We are thankful for the support we have received from the FareShare FoodCloud scheme, working in partnership with Tesco, which has given us the opportunity to access weekly free, unsold surplus food from its Blueboar Road store to make it available to the homeless community of Norwich.
“The Easter Day event will be full of fun and More like a street party. Attendance is free and all are welcome.”
