United Pentecostal Church continues free bfast in DQ | THE DAILY HERALD

United Pentecostal Church International Outreach Ministry “Feed my Sheep” representatives with some Dutch Quarter residents enjoying breakfast from the church on Saturday last.

~ Donations welcome ~

DUTCH QUARTER–Residents of Dutch Quarter are treated to a warm healthy breakfast and bush tea, and sometimes warm cornmeal porridge, on Saturday mornings thanks to the United Pentecostal Church International Outreach Ministry “Feed my Sheep.”

The Saturday morning breakfast programme began one week after Hurricane Irma in September 2017 and continued until the COVID-19 shutdown, which forced the church to temporarily stop the programme due to precautionary measures.

The Feed my Sheep Ministry resumed the breakfast programme in 2023 and the church continued to strengthen its bond with the neighbourhood. Residents who are in need of a warm meal can visit the church on Saturday mornings from around 8:00am for a free breakfast. The menu varies and includes home-made journey cakes or fresh bread with a side of either eggs and salt fish, smoked mackerel, chicken stew or stewed sausages. A large pot of freshly-brewed bush tea, made with local bushes, is always available and on some occasions freshly-made cornmeal porridge is also available.

The breakfast is prepared by church members, who set up a tent at the side of the church at Nazareth Road #4, where residents can pass by for their free breakfast.

The team welcomes donations to continue the programme in the community. Persons can either leave a donation when collecting their breakfast, or contact Sister Merl Antoine at tel. +1-721-553-04266 with any donations.

The church’s pastor James Irish also welcomes residents and the wider community to the church.
