Garden of Eating

The Garden of Eating is a ministry of our church staffed by over 25 volunteers which provides a free vegetarian meal each week at 12:15pm following the church service. The ministry is organised into 5 teams and provides a different menu for each week in the month.

In winter on a 5 weekend month, burgers are provided by our Mens BBQ team, a variety of 5 different delicious soups with bread rolls are provided on three weeks, and another team provides rice or pasta with a choice of sauces such as vegetable curry, mushroom stroganoff and bolognaise sauce. Dairy and gluten free options are always available.

In summer our menu is burgers by our Mens BBQ team, Haystacks (corn chips layered with a bean sauce, salad vegetables, cheese, sour cream and guacamole), hot dogs with salads and a patties with salads on the remaining one or two weeks.

We love having lunch together at Central Coast Community Church, as it provides a chance for us to catch-up and get to know each other better over a meal. Sharing conversation over a meal also gives us a chance to support and encourage each other. If you are planning to visit our church, please plan to stay and join us for lunch! Our ministry does take a break after Christmas and during January so that we can recharge our batteries to serve for the remainder of the year. Although our lunch is provided for free, donations are welcome!
