Some of the harvest display

Some of the harvest display

…was the theme of our Harvest Celebration. We were reminded of all the things that are good in our lives – the love of our friends and family and the wonderful variety of food in our supermarkets, among others – and we gave thanks to God. The children learned about how Christian Aid was helping people in India who farm honey from  wild bees.

After the service it was time to enjoy some of God’s goodness in our harvest meal. A magnificent spread was enjoyed by all!
