On Sunday 6th October we celebrated Harvest Festival. Our wonderful flower team had decorated the church beautifully. The Brownies had decorated bags and presented them during the service. Afterwards a lunch of soup and pie was served in the church hall prepared by Sandra Saint. Sandra is a huge part of our church community. We can always rely on Sandra for a tasty homemade lunch. It was her birthday too. A birthday cake was presented to her made by Elder Fran Smith. Happy birthday Sandra from us all.
Aldeburgh primary school visited the church on Monday 7th for their Harvest Festival Service. It was a wonderful celebration of harvest thanksgiving with the children reading poems they had written and leading us in songs such as the Harvest Samba! The children also gave a very interesting presentation on the history of harvest festivals and we they helped to lead our prayers using boxes of breakfast cereals.
Revd Johanna Mabey had the great pleasure of going to Aldringham Court Care Home to lead their Harvest Festival celebration. They sang favourite harvest hymns together and joined in saying prayers of thanksgiving to God for all the good gifts He gives us. Many thanks to Elaine at Aldringham Court for her beautiful harvest themed display – it was a very joyful service!
