There is a feel of Autumn in the air and the nights are pulling in. This reminds us of Harvest time and our Harvest Festival will be on the first Sunday of October when we will have a service of Family Communion.
This is a special time when we will be giving thanks for God’s provision for us and thinking about what harvest means in Southern Sudan. We will be hearing about what life is like for Nyipock in the village Alock in South Sudan. Nyipock is an Elder in the village and he bakes everyone’s bread: “Give us today our daily bread”. There will be an opportunity to give to the work of Christian Aid who is funding self help projects in the region.
We will be singing traditional harvest hymns with our choir and choristers, the flower team are working on a wonderful display, we invite you to bring provisions for Open Door, and we will eat together at a Bring and Share Harvest Lunch. The sign up form for the lunch is on the notice table this has been moved to the back of the South Side of church at the front of the bookshop. Do come.
