Harvest 2009

We celebrated our Harvest Festival on 11th October. The church had been beautifully decorated - thanks to all who donated produce, and to those who gave up their time to arrange it.

The morning service was a parade, and the church was full. The children brought offerings of fruit and vegetable baskets, bunches of flowers and boxes of cereals. Rev Neil Drayton led the service which involved lots of measuring (of leeks) and counting (of apples), and the children from the Shell Group, Beavers and Cubs sang "Always Remember, Never Forget to Say Thank You" with great gusto.

In the evening service, the theme of Measuring our Faith was further developed, as we thought of Christians who we measure ourselves against.

The choir sang the John Rutter anthem "Look at the World", which you can hear on the video file below.
