Our Harvest Festival will be celebrated on Sunday 30th September. We have our Family and Parade Service at 10.30am followed by our Harvest Lunch. Tickets for the lunch are available from Sue Beynon and Dawn Neighbour (see page 20). Many thanks to Sue and her team for organising the food.
We are very grateful to Sally Richards and her team who once again will be decorating the church for harvest.
In the evening at 6.30 pm we hold our traditional service of “Harvest Praise.” This is a joyful service of Harvest Hymns and Readings with Anthems led by Ian, our organist, and the Choir.
Gifts of non-perishable foodstuffs will be gratefully received at the morning service. These will be given to the food bank run by the Salvation Army in New Addington.
Harvest is also the time when we support the work of Christian Aid through our “Commitment for Life” appeal. Please remember to bring your envelope.
“Let us not grow weary in doing good, for at the proper time we shall reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
