    A soup kitchen for the poor is something St Emilian church in the Greek capital Athens provides every day.

    But with the debt crisis throwing so many middle class parishioners into hardship, the local priest organised a Christmas feast for about 40 of his flock.

    A three course meal was laid on at a family owned traditional Greek tavern close to the church.
