Company at Christmas 

'Company at Christmas' is an initiative run jointly by the churches in the town, via 'Churches Together in Bishop's Stortford'.  

A very different Company at Christmas 2020

Christmas Day each year, since 1984, has been a major working day for around fifty members of our town's churches, while most people are with their families or away.  These volunteers provide lunch, entertainment and tea to around 70 people who would otherwise be alone on this special day.  The guests are inevitably mostly elderly, but in fact anyone who would otherwise be alone on this day is very welcome to participate.   Many of our helpers are younger people.   We also take a hot Christmas Dinner to about 40 people who are alone at home, and spend a little time with them.

2020 Update

Sadly, it is impossible this year to provide live Christmas Day festivities. However, we plan to visit everybody who wishes on Christmas Day with our usual gift bag and a two-course ready meal.   For details of the opportunities to help us prepare and deliver Christmas Greetings to our guests and to volunteer, please see below.

To propose a new guest or self-refer, please contact Company at Christmas, or call Jenny Klincke on 01279-833523.
