|SECTION 3: THE LOGISTICS
The host church is the host. That may seem like a silly statement, but we hope you understand it. The overall experience of hospitality that the participants feel will be inevitably attached to the host. And so, as the host, what the hospitality looks like will and should completely depend on you—your style, your commitments, your creativity, your desire to be hospitable. Food and beverages for the workshop need not be extravagant. A quick, simple lunch will for each of the two days that lunch is on the schedule will certainly suffice. Of course, there are an endless variety of ways to add on. From coffee and/or breakfast in the mornings, to snacks during the breaks, to lunches to go on the last day, there are plenty of opportunities for meals, snacks, and beverages. Meals can be catered, volunteers can be recruited to provide food, or food can be ordered in. The options are endless.
--Establish a budget for the workshop food and drinks.
--Refreshments can be provided for the breaks throughout the workshop and lunches must be provided for the first two days (consult with the CST representative to determine where the meals fall in the schedule).
--Provide a room or area for the breaks and lunches. Have enough chairs and tables available for the participants to sit while eating meals.
