Harvest Festival was celebrated in fine style on October 2nd, when the congregation found the church decorated in traditional harvest panoply, reminding us of the good things of land and sea, for which we owe great thanks. The service was for the children, and the uniformed organisations took part in the celebrations.
Many members of the congregation then retired to the large hall for Harvest Lunch which had been prepared by the "A" team. The tables had been decorated with greenery and looked most attractive, and the three course meal was, as usual, delicious. The first course was pea soup and it was followed by hotpot with vegetables, red cabbage and beetroot. Dessert was trifle, provided by a number of ladies. The event was a wonderful opportunity to relax and enjoy the company of good friends. A big thank you to the chef and his team. We made £365 for missions.
