Sunday 25th September was the date of our Harvest Festival Service. It was a well attended and blessed time. David challenged us by saying that people in other places; if they were fortunate enough would have rice for breakfast, rice for lunch and rice for dinner, yet we have so many choices for all of those meals.
The table was laden with fresh produce, tins and packet foods which were later donated to the local food bank in Ashby. The weekly offering was donated to the charity Tearfund. Last week we hard how God loves a cheerful giver and it certainly makes you feel cheerful to know that things are going to people less fortunate than yourselves. It was a great time to praise and thank God for everything that he gives us.
