THE Rev Roger Steward led the harvest festival celebrations last Sunday. The church had been beautifully decorated for this event by the ladies of the church. During the morning service, a video from Christian Aid was shown to the congregation, explaining how Fair Trade helps farmers.
Jean Murfitt read the lesson, and Peter Kirby and Janice Wetherall were the pianists. The St John's Singers also sang two songs during the service. The stewards of the church helped take the evening service. Janice Wetherall was the organist.
On Monday evening, the harvest supper took place when 70 friends enjoyed a sausage and mash supper, followed by desserts. This was organised by the catering committee and was followed by a sale of harvest produce.
On Tuesday, the Women's Fellowship met. This coming Saturday, there will be a welcome return visit from Fiona Simpson Band, starting at 7.30pm in the church.
Ian Wetherall will lead the Sunday morning service at 10.45am and Terry Day will lead the evening service at 6.30pm. We extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us at any of our services/events.
