WMC: September 2020
Little did we think last year when we celebrated harvest that 2020 would find our church closed! Happily this will not be for much longer, but I felt we should not miss the opportunity for marking this special time of year and to have the chance to be thankful for the food we put on our tables.
The current situation has not prevented us from worshipping in our homes, whether on the T.V., radio or through Zoom and we continue to be aware of all those people less fortunate than ourselves and especially those who are facing extra difficulties during the pandemic. On October 4th Keith's Zoom service will be on the theme of harvest, but of course this year we will not be able to bring our usual harvest gifts, not to mention enjoy the church being decorated with flowers, fruit and vegetables. However I would like to invite you to support the local Foodbank by making a donation and Alison Phillips will be at church on the morning of Saturday, October 3rd from 10.00a.m. — 12.00 to receive them. There will also be an opportunity on Wednesday October 7th when June Grunwald has a harvest theme for Worship on Wednesday at 2.00p.m.
Any of the following items would be very much appreciated;
TINS; soup, fish, meat, vegetables, baked beans, rice pudding, custard, fruit.
PACKETS; rice, teabags, sugar, biscuits, treats, cereals.
JARS jam, pasta sauce, coffee, hot chocolate (to make with water).
CARTONS long life milk, long life fruit juice.
HYGENIC ITEMS sanitary products, shampoo, shower gel, deodorants, toothbrush, toothpaste.
Thank you in advance from all those who have found themselves depending on the good will of others through no fault of their own. (Alison Phillips)
