Soup Kitchen

When is it open?

St John’s Soup Kitchen is open every Tuesday from 7.30 pm to 9 pm.  We provide a sit down vegetarian meal of soup and bread, followed by a pudding.

No referral is needed, but we are not able to cater for children.

For more information please email or download the Soup Kitchen flyer from the bottom of this page.
