In July 2011, St Michael's launched "Centre Rendezvous", which aims to provide a weekly meeting place for the whole community, with the opportunity of having an inexpensive lunch as well.
It was the idea of our Parish Priest, Lorraine McGregor, whose vision was to provide a place where people could meet on a weekly basis, find company, and enjoy a good simple lunch, with plenty of home cooking, at reasonable prices.
Centre Rendezvous is staffed by volunteers from St Michael's Church who work in the kitchen, serve visitors and who make the cakes and soups that are generally available. The current menu and prices are left (February 2019).
We have been supported in the venture by POPPS (Partnership for Older People Projects), an organisation which is funded through the Department of Health and which provides some financial support to this type of venture. This provided initial equipment that was required.
Centre Rendezvous's Manager from January 2019 is Daphne Jones.
