CLA Feasts
Let's Eat. Together.


Connecting People. Strengthening Community. Imagining Impact.

Have you ever considered that in a church our size there are likely others from CLA that you haven’t met yet that live within a few minutes of your home – maybe even in your neighbourhood or on your street! Wouldn’t it be great to feel better connected? Just by getting together for one pot-luck meal all kinds of possibilities open up for friendship, feeling closer, or even discovering potential in common local mission fields. Who knows what going to the CLA Feast near you could lead to? Let’s find out!

We’re at work setting up local pot-lucks within minutes of every household in CLA of the course of this next year. There will be one close to you!

8. Should I invite my neighbours?

This first round of CLA Feasts is all about getting CLA connected to each other in their areas. Our hope, down the road, is together as a church host feasts that reach our neighbours. All that to say, if you really want to bring a neighbour you can but we will be bringing more focus to that in future events.

9. How often do CLA Feasts happen?

Over the next year, we are endeavouring to put a CLA feast within minutes of every home in our church. This means that there will be 1-2 feasts a week during this time period. This is a one-time project for our church to help grow community, connection and help us learn how to feast well together.
