Harvest 2017

Our harvest celebrations began with crafts for the children in Church House. They were asked to plan a picnic, not just the food, but thinking beyond that to who they would invite, where they would go, what else they would need and so on…harvest 5

While the children were enjoying their activity, the adults were enjoying bacon rolls provided by members of the fundraising committee,

We were then joined in church at 10.30am by other members of both our 9.45am and 11am services to share in a non-communion service, celebrating the harvest.

On Monday, the children from Bishop Loveday School came along to church to take part in their own harvest festivals, and later in the week, the children from Kingsfield and Saltway Nurseries joined with Sarah in church to celebrate in their way.

Thank you to all who contributed to the tin collection for the Foodbank – they were very appreciative of them all when they were delivered later in the week.

Pause for Prayer
Prayer is at the very heart of Christian life, supporting the lives of individuals, the church, the community and the world. It can take many forms, any of which can be appropriate at particular times. It can be corporate (as much of our prayer is during public acts of worship) or it can be private. It can use familiar, much-loved words, or our own personal attempts to put into words our deepest thoughts and concerns. It can be wordless, as we still our hearts and minds and come before God in silence, giving him the space to speak to us.

Pause for Prayer is a new initiative for our parish, as we meet together in the church at 12noon on the last Friday of the month for 30 minutes of prayer. We will generally focus on a single relevant topic and will offer the opportunity for some corporate prayer as well as periods of silence for our own personal prayer. We are fortunate to have several experienced people within our congregation who will lead these sessions.

We firmly believe that prayer can, and does, change the world for the better, so do please come along and help make a difference – everyone is most welcome. If you cannot actually be in the church at this time you might like to pause for a few moments wherever you are to remember those who are gathered together in prayer.

Pause for Prayer takes place at 12noon on  Friday 24th February and each subsequent last Friday.
