Embrace the practice of hospitality.

With loneliness and isolation reaching unprecedented levels in the UK, it’s never been more important for Christians to commit to practising hospitality.

But for many of us, hospitality is a lost art – a practice we’ve forgotten, neglected, or distorted beyond all recognition. Amid material comforts and rife individualism, practicing hospitality can be daunting – we can worry that too much is expected of us, that we need to present a perfect home, or that something could go wrong when we let others into our space.

But what if hospitality was actually simpler and yet more profound than we can imagine?

A Place At The Table, the new book from author, working professional, and mother-of-two Jo Swinney, in collaboration with her late mother, explores this crucial topic – drawing on biblical insights from the early church and a deep well of experience, and extending a warm invitation to embrace the loving kindness of others.

Join her in conversation with Paul Woolley at the launch of the book, as she shares insights on how we can combat loneliness and isolation through simple, Christlike hospitality.

There’ll also be an opportunity for Q&A and plenty of wine, cheese, and fruit!

Preorder your copy of the book from A Rocha’s website.
