Giving thanks and food this harvest

What are you thankful for? Can you tell us?

This year, Harvest Festival will still go ahead but will be celebrated in a slightly different way. We can’t have a Harvest Supper or an Apple Day with apple pressing and apple pancakes, but we can still celebrate in church and also online.

As part of the online celebrations we would like you to take a video of something you are thankful for, whether it is the fruit in your garden, the beautiful world around us, a pet, something you have learned, a gift you have received, anything that you feel blesses you and for which you would like to give thanks. Send your video to Alan by September 18. If it is a large video, you can use to send it.

On October 4 there will be Harvest services online here as well as physical ones in the churches too – in St John’s at 9.30am, St George’s at 10am and St Mark’s at 11am. We will be collecting packet and tinned goods for the Farnham Foodbank. The Foodbank welcomes all donations but at the moment has a large stock of tea, breakfast cereal, baked beans, long-life milk and long-life juice so would prefer other items such as tinned vegetables, tinned fish and meat, rice, pasta, puddings and the like.

Please bring your donations to any of the churches. They will be left for three days to ensure that there is no risk of Covid contamination and then will be passed on to the Foodbank.
