Dinner Together

What is Dinner Together

Once a month we meet with others nearby for a ‘Dinner Together’ from 6pm to 7:30pm.

Why Do We Do It

It is possible, or even likely, that there are people who attend Baptist churches, who live near you and you don’t know well.

We are wondering what would happen if, for 7 months, we prioritised spending a bit more time with others from their local area for an hour and a half a month from April to October.

This is a chance to meet with people from different backgrounds, ages and churches that you would not normally meet, and connect with people you are likely to meet at the local post office or shopping centre. It is also a chance to invite other friends that may be interested in connecting.

What to Expect

  • Once you register, Citywide Baptist will be in touch to let you know who your host is. It is likely that it will be the same host each month.
  • The Dinner will start at 6pm and finish by 7:30pm
  • Everyone who comes is encouraged to bring enough food (main course) to share for themselves and 1 or 2 extra. BBQ chickens from Woolworths or Hot Chips are fine for those who have to come from work.
  • The host will provide a simple dessert. This is an informal pot-luck dinner and we encourage casual seating to aid conversation.
  • At the first dinner the host will explore with people whether there is a time or day that better suits the group but the default dates are:  April 26, May 31, June 28, July 26, August 30, September 27, October 25
  • Groups may want to discuss whether there are any ways the group might serve their local community together. There is no expectation of a particular outcome from this conversation.

So we can allocate you with a host nearby.
In 2024 we are suggesting that the host location remains consistent for the 8 months. Hosts will cater for between 10 and 16 participants.
This is a rough guess to help with planning.
