Harvest

HARVEST FESTIVAL
Sunday 11th October.

An opportunity to give thanks for all God has provided for us. To demonstrate our thankfulness we bring gifts to give to those in the local and global community who are in great need.

Again we support shall support international and local charities, not forgetting the elderly and infirm in our own community.

Gifts of plants and flowers will be taken to those in our local community who are sick or housebound. If you are aware of anyone who you feel should receive such a gift, or if you can help deliver the gifts, please let any member of the clergy team know.

Donations of tinned and dry goods are welcome -  gifts will be distributed locally including via Porch Project, Caritas and the Booth Centre. Particular needs are highlighted on the appropriate links,

There are envelopes available in Church if you wish to make a donation to Christian Aid, remembering those throughout the world who will struggle to reap a harvest sufficient for their needs.
