This Sunday morning at St James, we hold our annual Harvest Service.
It is a time when we recognise our dependency for the food we need. The Christian understanding has always been that that dependency is a partnership between human effort through farmers and growers and the provision of our Creator God.
In acknowledgement of this it is tradition to present harvest gifts which are later distributed to those in need. Our modern take on this tradition is to bring produce which will be forwarded to the local Food Bank.
We are therefore asking folk to bring items which are suitable for the Food Bank, such as: tins with ring pulls, sugar, tea, UHT or dried milk and other non-perishable foods with a long shelf life indicated, etc.
Also at this service our collection will go to helping Syrian refugees. Our service begins at 11.00am and all will be very welcome tojoin us.
