Anyone who needs a hot meal or just some company for Christmas is welcome to join in the eighth St. Nicholas Feast organized by St. Nicholas Birch Cliff Anglican Church.
From 4 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 20, church members and staff from the nearby Wimpy’s restaurant will serve a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings at nearby Birchcliff Bluffs United Church, before retiring to St. Nicholas for coffee and dessert.
A special visitor will also appear to hand out gifts to the children. Without giving away too much, the portly visitor in question is a familiar sight at this time of year to children who have been good.
As church member Ken Campbell points out, “We’re St. Nicholas, so we have a direct line to Santa Claus.”
Organizers expect a turnout in the hundreds, including many clients from the Birch Cliff Bluffs Neighbourhood Centre, though all are welcome.
St. Nicholas Anglican Church is at 1512 Kingston Rd. Dinner begins first at Birchcliff Bluffs United Church, 33 East Rd. For more information call St. Nicholas at 416-691-0449.
