Our Harvest Festival

We celebrated God's goodness with our harvest festival in a church which was beautifully decorated and full of gifts. 

Our young people took a range of roles in a service which was shared by both the regular 10am and 11.30 Thirty Minute church congregations. 



 On Saturday they made the bread for the communion service 
 First they made a harvest banner to show all of God's good gifts  


 They joined with Rev Anne in the sermon - where they handled some long sticks - listen to why by listening to the sermon here;  
 and they made happy and sad faces  

Communion Prayer at Harvest

 They also took part in the prayer of thanksgiving, led by the children as Rev Anne explains in this video.  




Our flower arrangers made the church look beautiful 






We brought gifts which will go to the Northampton Food Bank 
























We had a harvest supper the night before, with a great quiz (what year WAS the £1 coin introduced?) and lots of good food brought and shared by the people there.  Thanks to everyone who brought food, came and shared.
