St. Cuthbert's has been involved in sponsoring dinners at Kerr Street for many years. These dinners are attended by people in the community who are facing struggles financially or socially, and are looking for a warm meal and sense of community.
Gathering around the table, sharing food, conversation and time together is a wonderful way to connect people and build community.
If you are not able to volunteer at the dinner, but still would like to be able to support this program, please consider a monetary donation. Each meal costs approximately $300-350, for a total yearly cost to our church of about $2000. Please write Kerr Street Dinner on your envelope.

Mission to Seafarers
Day and night for 365 days per year, the Mission is on call providing help for seafarers in over 200 ports around the world.
Seafarers need our help because they are often working in dangerous conditions, with no one else to turn to. Our Port Chaplains send us stories about the sea men and women they support, and we tailor our help to each and every one of them.
Rev. Jeff is on the Board for the Mission to Seafarers.
