Churches feed 5,000 with fish rolls in miracle re-enactment

Worshippers from St Jude's Church in Southsea, together with St Simon's Church, St Margaret's Church, the Vineyard Church, the Methodists and Kings Church in Southsea re-created the feeding of the 5,000 as part of a free community festival.

120 volunteers gave out free food to members of the public together with a copy of the story recorded in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as part of the #Feeding5K event.

The initiative was organised to bring to life Jesus' miracle of feeding 5,000 people with five loaves and two fish and encourage people to consider his life and works.

Speaking before the event, Rev Neil Smart of St Jude's Church said: "We want to put Jesus back at the centre of the life of our city by showing that he still does miracles among us today."

The community festival included live music from Christian singer Jessie Dipper, talks, interviews, and specialist activities for kids and youth.

The event was financially supported by the Love Portsmouth Fund and the Portsmouth Diocese's Mission Opportunities Fund.

A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
