Gospel concert- a Big House benefit

Fraser Campbell and his band have a Sooke date lined up – Saturday, May 7 at 7 p.m. The dynamic combo from Victoria will deliver it’s Christian message and show support for a Big House Breakfast program at Sooke Baptist Church. The meals are served Monday and Wednesday mornings from 7:30 to 9.

Whatever challenge a person may face it’s sure to go better after a good meal. Nourishment is what makes everything else possible.

But the sad fact is that many people face the new day without the fuel for health and success. Caring local folks, however, are working hard to do something about that.

Two days a week the Big House Breakfast is available to those who crave it, along with a warm and welcoming environment. This sort of function may offer just what a visitor is looking for.

The people who run The Big House Community Breakfast told the Sooke News Mirror the effort was  started three and a half years ago by a group of Lay Counsellors in Sooke who wanted to give back to their community.

“Their idea was to create a meeting place where the community of Sooke could come and get a nourishing breakfast for themselves and their families and also to build relationships with others in the community,” they pointed out.

“It was also designed to help those in the community with good nutrition guidelines and safe food preparation through example.

“It was the dream of the originators that through the breakfast, people could develop their own sense of worth and purpose. Today, some who started out as clients are now helping prepare and serve the breakfast on a regular basis. Others have found employment as a result of their attendance.”

The founding group continues to provide the bulk of the breakfast funding, and is grateful to others in the community who have pitched in. The group is extremely grateful to every individual and every group that helps out.

More than 7,000 breakfasts have been enjoyed since the program has been in existence and the need only seems to grow as time goes on. By taking in the performance by the Fraser Campbell Band you can demonstrate your support for the effort.

Fraser’s promo literature describes him as “a gifted writer whose songs radiate with passion and energy.  Inspired to write worship music that is dynamic, original and edgy, Fraser and the band have placed a strong emphasis on pushing the creative envelope in worship while producing songs that are still melodically attainable and memorable.”
