We certainly chirped for joy during our Harvest Festival service on Sunday morning — helped of course by Heather's hen, Ethel!

Sadly the appearance of a Red Kite in the skies above Heather's home meant that Hedwig was not in a fit state to come along with Ethel.

Not only were we raising funds for All We Can and their work in Zimbabwe, but we also Launched our year-long Partner Church scheme with All We Can, to support Regai, her family and her community in Bandawa, Central Zimbabwe.

There will be other events taking place throughout the year to raise money for this most important work.

Watch this space!

P.S. What did you do with your egg?!
