STEAK pie and homemade apple crumble were on the menu at one of Weston-super-Mare’s churches, as part of a feed the homeless session.

Vintage Church, in Hughenden Road, fed 19 people emergency meals.

Group leader Claire Rogers said: “Some of them are sleeping rough and have nowhere to go.

“It’s emergency food but we put effort into it, all of our desserts were home-made, we want them to feel like they are special.

“It is very important that they have somewhere to go and someone to speak to as well.”

The sessions will run on the first and third Sunday of every month at the church.
