Harvest Festival - 2017

Sunday 1st October

 

Our friends from the Fell Church were invited to join us in celebrating this special festival.  The church was once again beautifully decorated by the Flower Team to the theme of 'Harvesting our talents'.

A warm welcome greeted us in the front porch!

 

And inside ...

 

The pulpit had its own decoration

Our offerings this year took the form of tinned or dried items of food – rather than fresh fruit and vegetables -with cash donations for the Bishops’ Harvest Appeal for USPG and Christian Aid.  The items of food were then be taken to the Foodbank collection the following Sunday, 8th.

 

Andrew, our curate, conducted the service, during which the decorations and contributions were blessed, including a basket of posies which had been prepared for the pastoral team to take out to those who were unable to get to Church.  The choir sang a specially rehearsed anthem.

 Following the service, the congregation stayed to enjoy a Jacob's Join lunch to which everyone had contributed.  Tables were laid in the new social area, with drinks available.  All agreed that it had been a really fitting way to celebrate Harvest.
