Dropping in after dropping out

Five years after setting up a drop in lunch session for the homeless, this church is seeing the types of people dropping in, now includes those with homes and cars.

Former business people and former managers with decent jobs are now among those desperate for Caversham Baptist Church’s free lunch on a Wednesday. It may not be what it was intended for but charity is now needed for some people who never thought they would need it.

As will appear on getreading.co.uk in the next few days, those numbers are going up all over town including at Churches Together in Reading Drop in Centre (CIRDIC) in Berkeley Avenue.

However well you are doing, it’s a reminder that maybe it’s sensible not to take your current circumstances for granted.
