As part of a national charity campaign Exeter’s church leaders are battling to show off their baking skills.

The contestants will be baking their best bread under the watchful eye of the BBC’s Judi Spiers and local baker Emma Parkin of Emma’s Bread, a finalist in the 2012 Devon Life Awards.

Bishop Michael of Exeter, Methodist District Chair Rev Peter Pillinger, Canon Rev Ian Morter of Exeter Cathedral and Southernhay URC Elder Sabrina Groeschel will bring their best recipes to the Cathedral Green at 3.30pm on Monday 11 March for an outside bread bake off.

This year major development organisations including Christian Aid, Tearfund, Action Aid, Oxfam, Save the Children, World Vision and Unicef, have come together to use their combined strength to tackle global hunger.

The IF campaign highlights the scandal of hunger in a world which has enough food for everyone and then demand action from governments, companies, international organisations and individuals.  The aim is to bring about changes that are huge strides towards a world in which everyone has enough to eat.

The Bake Off event includes an interview with Christian Aid’s Programme Manager in Zimbabwe, Noah Kutukwa.

Everyone is invited to come along to watch and be part of the event and to find out more about the campaign. There may even be some bread to try!
