On Sunday 1st October our Harvest Thanksgiving and Communion Service was be led by our Minister Revd Camilla Veitch. Camilla’s theme for the service was about food from being very plentiful in some places to being very meagre in others. We watched pictures on the screen and heard the story of a farmer called Frank in Malawi who because of problems with the weather his crops failed so he couldn’t feed his family. We sang some lovely harvest hymns throughout the service before celebrating communion together. The children then came back into church from their Explorers Group showing the work that they had been doing during the morning.
The harvest table was overflowing with gifts of food and flowers which were to be sold after the service, the proceeds of which were to be sent with our envelope gifts to the farmers of Malawi through Christian Aid (£192.32).
