Early on Shrove Tuesday, the folks from Christ Church, Ballynure, and St John’s, Ballyclare, braved the weather to serve up some delicious pancakes to the local community and share God’s love through a simple act of generosity.
More than 200 pancakes were given away to people going to their work, children going to school and parents leaving them off. The rector, the Rev Jonny Campbell-Smyth, said: “We could not have imagined the response, and my thanks go to all of our willing parishioners who have given up their time this morning for this community outreach.
“Kids have been asking whether we can do this every morning, but they will have to wait. Our next community event is scheduled for Holy Week when we will give away Hot Cross buns on Good Friday!”
