Harvest Festival is on Sunday 6 October. We are looking forward to welcoming pupils from the local schools and their parents, and we’re sure we’ll enjoy the special songs the school choirs have prepared for the service at 10.30 am – we always do!
All are welcome to bring in-date non-perishable goods to both the 8.00 am and 10.30 am services, for example: food tins, pasta, rice, coffee, tea, soap, shower gel, shampoo etc. The gifts are destined for Beacon House, Night Shelter, Colchester Soup Run, Wivenhoe Foodbank and Wivenhoe residents in need.
We will need help with packing up all the gifts. Just come to the church at 9.30 am on Monday 7th October if you can give a hand, and if you could bring a cardboard box that would be most useful too.
