Tempo – cooking for the community

cooking croppedFreda (a chef, pictured above) and Denise (a radiation therapist) have just finished Tempo in Dublin. As members of their church mission team responsible for la variety of different projects, they started Tempo unsure of where their focus should be. Working through the mission and context module, Freda and Denise highlighted the number of older people living alone and low income families in the area around their church. Two particular issues that became clear on further research were loneliness and the need for meal ideas that are healthy and affordable.

Just before Christmas they held their first ‘Meals for a fiver’ cooking class for the local community – prepared with locally available ingredients.

We’re excited by the potential as Freda, Denise and their church serve some very real needs in their local community and build relationships with people, many of whom rarely darken the door of a church.

Tempo equips leaders with the skills and character to lead local mission that brings hope and transformation to their local community. We currently have groups running in Dublin and Coleraine. Tempo runs in towns and cities and also with teams from the same church. To find out more click here.
