The Anglican Men’s Society will hold its annual Lenten Soup Night on Friday 22 March.

Organiser Howard Kingston shares the details of the popular event, which is a spartan meal in recognition of the Christian season of Lent which culminates with Good Friday.

What inspires the Anglican Men's Society to organise the Lenten Soup Night?

Anglican Men’s Society, this year in partnership with Mothers’ Union (both within Bundaberg Anglican Parish), are organising Soup Night as a spartan meal within the annual Christian Lenten season of fasting.

This has been happening annually for nearly 30 years, an original idea of Centenarian Tony Osborn who will again be making his Mulligatawny Soup and attending the event.

What's on the menu at Lenten Soup Night?

There will be many (10+) varieties of soups, mainly vegetable variations which should cover all dietary needs, [plus] Mulligatawny which is a South Indian recipe with lamb and vegetables.

How is the community invited to participate in this event?

At Soup Night we invite parishioners and others to join us.

The public are welcome, cost $15 per person, phone church office to book 4151 3128.

Everyone must book by Tuesday 19 March and pay ahead of the event.

Attendance numbers are limited by space, and we are normally sold out.

Funds raised will be divided equally between Scripture Union School Chaplaincies and our parish Soup Kitchen which provides meals and food parcels for the poor and homeless.

Scripture Union's Lisa Hardy will be the guest speaker this year.
