HARVEST FESTIVAL

Sunday 2nd October 11.00am

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness… (John Keats)

 

The Harvest Festival Service is always a very special family event in the Church Calendar. St Mary’s Church will be decorated especially for the occasion, with floral displays reflecting this beautiful time of year. A lively Auction of donated perishable food will follow the service in Church, so please come along prepared to bid! Donations of non-perishable foods go to support the Trussell Trust Foodbank in Aylesbury, at a time when compassion and generosity are much needed.

 

We will then move to the Wesley Centre for a ‘Bring and Share’ Lunch. You are invited to bring along a savoury or sweet dish of your choice to place on the table to share. Even if you forget to ‘bring’, you will still be very welcome to ‘share’! Drinks will be provided by the Church. The Service and Lunch are open to everyone, especially children, and you can be assured of a very warm welcome.

 

We plough the fields and scatter the good seed on the land

But it is fed and watered by God’s Almighty hand …….

 

                                                                                                                                   

The Foodbank is desperately in need of donations of non-perishable foods at this difficult time in many people’s lives. Monetary donations are always welcome too. One of the ways money is spent is to top up food where stocks of certain items are running low.

The following dry and/or tinned foods are in very short supply and would be welcome this month:

coffee

tea

biscuits

soup

pasta sauces

chocolate

powdered mashed potato

long-life milk

fruit juice

toothpaste/shower gel/shampoo

 

Donations of other foods are also welcome: cereals, tinned pasta in sauce, meat, fish, tinned fruit, sponge puddings, custard, rice pudding.

Please leave your donations in the wheelbarrow at the back of 47 High Street

on the first Sunday of the month

Thank you!

Aly and Dave Perrett
