THIS year marks the fifth for the Uniting Church of Woolgoolga's open-house Christmas lunch, a day aimed to bring the community together even in difficult times.

"We realise there are people who don't have family and friends to celebrate Christmas with and it is our aim to ensure no one will be lonely,” Lay Leader Val Moase said.

Ms Moase said it was not a religious event, and everyone was welcome.

Grace will be said prior to the meal.

"We never know who will come, or how many,” she said.

"We simply open our doors to anyone who would like to come in, and serve everyone lunch.

"It's about good food, good fellowship and good fun.”

Ham, turkey and salads will be on the menu this Christmas.

Lunch will be served at noon on Christmas at the Uniting Church Hall on Trafalgar St.

There is no charge.
