NightShift’s Christmas Dinner 2020 was definitely one to remember!
This year, for the first time, we were delighted to extend our hot turkey dinner service to include Langley as well as Surrey. Because of the generosity of our sponsors from the local business and faith communities, NightShift shared a holiday meal, gifts and goodies with about 225 people in both cities.
Christmas Dinner provides an opportunity to share a hot meal and gifts celebrating the great news that God has come to live among us. We need that reminder this year more than ever — Jesus, Emmanuel, has come to dwell in the NightShift neighbourhood.
We were faced with unusual challenges this Christmas season: pandemic restrictions on gatherings, inclement weather, power outages and mechanical difficulties with our food truck. But our wonderful volunteers pulled together, made quick adjustments to serve hot turkey dinners over three nights in Surrey and Langley combined. Well done everyone!
Merry Christmas to all!
