An "On The Move" Outreach simply offers passers-by a free lunch and an opportunity to chat under an umbrella of worship.
Set up in a public location, church volunteers offer everybody a free burger, sausage or vegetarian option with a drink of water, with a band and singers offering worship in the background. Tables and seats afford table hosts an opportunity to chat and to offer of prayer.
Serving between 12 noon and 2 pm a typical setup can serve 600-800 people, expect worthwhile conversations with over a hundred and pray with dozens.
"On The Move" Outreaches are facilitated by nine regional groups across UK. For more information visit http://www.onthemoveeast.org

I was able to be a part of On the move in Brentwood for a couple of years, it is an idea I have brought to my current church but on a much smaller basis. On 6th July we will be opening the doors to the people on the local estate - we buy 150 burgers and 150 sausages (we have a deal with the local butcher across the road) and we give away free food to everyone on the estate. We just use the ground in front of our church on the middle of a working class housing estate, the worship band play all afternoon. Some people pull up a chair and join us for the full 2 hours, others are blessed as they pass by - Last year we did it for the first time, and we are very excited to do it again.
We are a small, home mission funded church, proving that you dont have to be big and rich to bless your immediate community.
