With their initiative ‘Christmas lunch is on Jesus’, the Kingdom Light Church in Hatfield donated over 30 hampers to needy families and organisations in time for Christmas.

Church leaders estimate that over 100 local residents benefited by the hampers, which contained all the ingredients and trimmings needed to cook a proper Christmas dinner.

The church received referrals from Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, Welwyn Garden City & Hatfield Schools Partnership, Welwyn Hatfield CVS, Resolve, Change Grow Live, Home Start, Hatfield Foodbank, Hatfield Night Shelter and many more.

On the evening of Saturday December 22, Pastor Femi Oludare set out to deliver the hampers to over 20 families, and had other hampers ready for the organisations to pick up on Christmas Eve.
