Lunch will be a basic meal based on ingredients used in Malawi

  • A bean stew based on dried beans cooked with tomato, onion, and other vegetables over many hours.
  • Refried beans cooked with sweet potato and combined with a tomato based sauce. 
  • Both dishes served with fair trade Kilombero rice grown in Malawi by smallholder farmers.

Traditionally cooking might take place outside in a big pot over an open fire, but as it is winter in Scotland we make no apologies for cooking in our kitchen!

Malawi Appeal – latest

We welcomed over 40 supporters to our Malawi Style Lunch today. We suggested African dress or something bright, and we weren’t disappointed.

The Kilombero Rice from sustainable farms in Malawi with Bean Stew, and Refried Beans went down a storm, sometimes our home felt a bit like a fast food outlet, but everyone seemed to have a good time. The Bottom Line? . . . St Michaels raised over £600 for the appeal on behalf of this Rotary Club initiative. We want to thank everyone who came, contributed, ate, cleared away and helped to wash the dishes.

The Feast of St Michael

On Sunday 29th September we celebrated the Feast of St Michael & All Angels – our Patronal Festival. At the Sung Eucharist, our guest preacher was Canon Michael Webb from the Carlisle Diocese.

His theme was Angels as God’s messengers.  Perhaps today they do not appear as shining winged creatures to us, but they are with us as our family, friends, mentors, and others who help us through example, counsel, or comment to better see how to carry out God’s needs and wishes here in the world.  We should listen to others, they may perhaps unwittingly be Gods Messengers like St Michael. The congregation shared a St Michael’s day cake as we did last year. The inscription reads ‘St Michael protect us’.

And the flowers round the cake are, of course, Michaelmas daisies.
