Harvest Festival

Harvest Festival October 2017
 

Harvest is a time to celebrate God's goodness towards us, and to give thanks for providing for our every need.

It is also a time to think of those who are less fortunate than ourselves, and who struggle to feed their families. This year, we took part in the All-We-Can Programme to raise funds to buy chickens for families in Zimbabwe.

Some of our young people bringing their Harvest Gifts   ....

... and leading a reading to remind us at this time of the year how God provides for us.

Singing a song to acknowledge that Our God is a Great Big God.

Rev'd Rob Hilton addressing the young people and helping them understand how chickens (and eggs) can help to feed the world

Our Church Windows were decorated to remind us of  God's provision for us...

... Traditional gifts from the Harvest of the field, the garden, and the orchard ... and also reminders of other gifts He provides:

  • the gift of creativity (expressed       through stained glass)
  • the gift of the Holy Spirit

Following the morning service, a frugal lunch was held: a time of fellowship, to reflect on what we learned during the service,and also to raise money for the All-We-Can Appeal...
