Home delivery to sit-down service
The Grove Centre Church’s lunch service has been able to successfully open its doors to guests once more. Two course home-cooked lunches are served to our guests at individual tables, at a safe distance from one another, whilst still being able to see friendly faces and have a chat. Reopening the doors in a covid-secure way allows people to have a healthy lunch, get some exercise, and reduce social isolation, whilst maintaining social distancing.
The lunch service is open on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Doors at 12:15 for lunch served at 12:30. Meals, at £3.80 for two courses, must be booked a week ahead.
For more information, please contact the Centre Manager, David, on 020 8778 8601, 9am-1pm on the open days.
