Join the Fellowship Supper Club

Join the Fellowship Supper Club

During the program year, we gather in small groups to get to know each other better and share the fellowship of a simple meal. We are a large and active church, and one of the joys and challenges of being a large and busy church is that there is always someone new to meet! Our Supper Club can foster opportunities to make friends with other wonderful people outside our usual social circles.

What is Supper Club? Supper Club is a guided potluck dinner at a host’s home, where a group of people meets in an informal and relaxed setting.  It’s great for newcomers and long-timers.

Who can participate? All adults who attend The Congregational Church of New Canaan (members and visitors) are invited to participate!

How does it work? Save the dates! There are three dinners this year, each featuring a different themed menu: November 5 (Fall Harvest), March 4 (Tour of Italy), and June 3 (Polynesian Feast). Everyone who signs up for a dinner will be grouped with 6 to 8 other people. Each person or couple will be assigned a dish or a role that will contribute to a complete dinner (host, appetizer, main course, dessert, etc.). On the day of the dinner, you prepare your dish, grab an adult beverage to share (if desired), and head to your host’s home to enjoy an evening of food and fellowship!

Who figures out when and where our supper club will gather? Multiple small dinners will occur on November 5, March 4, and June 3. When you sign up, the club’s coordinator, Dawn Doak, will reach out with your assignment the week of the dinner. If you are willing to host the dinner in your home, you can indicate that on the sign-up form (hosts don’t need to cook! They are just responsible for setting the table and serving non-alcoholic beverages).

What if I can’t cook? 
You don’t need to be a gourmet cook! The recipes are designed to be easy and great for groups.

What if I’m a vegetarian, lactose/gluten intolerant, or allergic to garbanzo beans? There is a place to list all your dietary restrictions on the online form. The coordinator and hosts will be informed of your needs and will work with the group to make sure there are options for you.

Sign up today for our Fall Harvest-themed dinner on  November 5. Contact Dawn Doak at to RSVP.
