Holy Family dinners are low-key, highly relational, regularly scheduled meet-ups that give you a chance to create really meaningful 1:1 connections with other people.
What do we do at the dinners?
1. Once everyone arrives, the evening begins by lighting a candle on the table while we pray a short evening prayer from the Book of Common Prayer.
2. After we pray, we’ll sit and share a meal together.
3. While we eat we’ll have good conversations with each other. No bible study or lessons. Just good questions to really get to know other people who are passionate about the same things you are.
How often do dinners meet-up?
Some meet every week and others meet every other. It’s up to the people around your dinner table.
How many people can attend each dinner?
While we generally encourage 12 and under, it’s up to the people around your dinner table.
How long is each dinner?
At least an hour. But it’s up to the people around your dinner table.
Can new people join every dinner?
Some like to always keep the invitation open. Others prefer to have a consistent set of faces around the dinner table to really grow strong connections between them. You’ve probably guessed by now: it’s up to the people around your dinner table.
If I sign up to join a dinner, how many times are we getting together?
Say it with us: it’s up to the people around your dinner table.
Best practices that can help the longevity of the dinners is to share the hosting opportunities.
We’re aiming for low- key, highly-relational dinners.
What’s on the menu?
Maybe you create a text thread and co-create the menu every week. Maybe you order take out. Maybe everyone makes something or contributes something and do it potluck style. It truly is up to the people around your dinner table.
