Dinner Church – A Reading Guide

Dinner Church Reading Guide

Dinner Church, church gatherings centered around sharing a meal together, has been rising in prominence over the last few years. In these churches, the Eucharist is not a symbolic meal, but rather a full, literal meal and the time of worship is woven through the time of sharing food and conversation together.

Here is a dinner church reading guide — books that offer a look into the stories, theology, and practice of dinner church.

might look like during a pandemic?

Dinner Church Reading Guide

We Will Feast: Rethinking Dinner, Worship, and the Community of God

Kendall Vanderslice

*** If you are new to the idea of dinner church, we recommend starting with this book

The gospel story is filled with meals. It opens in a garden and ends in a feast. Records of the early church suggest that believers met for worship primarily through eating meals. Over time, though, churches have lost focus on the centrality of food– and with it a powerful tool for unifying Christ’s diverse body.

But today a new movement is under way, bringing Christians of every denomination, age, race, and sexual orientation together around dinner tables. Men and women nervous about stepping through church doors are finding God in new ways as they eat together. Kendall Vanderslice shares stories of churches worshiping around the table, introducing readers to the rising contem­porary dinner-church movement. We Will Feast provides vision and inspiration to readers longing to experience community in a real, physical way.
