Come along and share in a Coronation lunch fit for a king!

A very special Bring & Share lunch is being held at St Peter’s Church on Coronation Sunday as Carmarthen commemorates a historic moment in the nation’s history.

Congregation and friends are welcome to attend the informal gathering at the Church on Sunday May 7th and, if they can, to bring along a plate of food for sharing.

The event, which will mirror many community get-togethers across the country as part of the King’s Coronation, aims to strengthen community links and embrace the joy of sharing, receiving, thankfulness and fellowship.

St Peter's has a history stretching back nearly a thousand years and houses many features of historic interest which include some of the finest wall memorials in Wales. As the oldest building in continuous use in Carmarthen, it will provide a significant setting for such a momentous occasion.

The Revd Canon Dr Matthew Hill believes the Coronation weekend presents a wonderful opportunity for the Church to extend a warm welcome to friends of all ages, old and new, to gather with a true sense of belonging. He said: “Please do come along, with or without a plate. Bring what you can, and we will share in a special lunch together.”

The St Peter’s Church Coronation Lunch starts at 12 noon on Sunday May 7th. You are invited to bring your plates along to the 10.30am service and join in the celebration of the Eucharist, or to just come along at midday if you are unable to attend beforehand.

Mini quiches; savoury tarts; pizza, salads; sandwiches; puddings and cakes are just some ideas of what to bring to make it a lunch fit for a king. There will also be soft drinks and, of course, a fun filled and celebratory Coronation theme.
