Harvest Thanksgiving

We thank everyone who brought fruit, flowers and produce for the Harvest and especially the children of Gatehouse School who helped decorate Church so beautifully. Afterwards, many of the artistic creations were taken to Fleet Valley Care Home where the Rector conducted a short Harvest Service on Wednesday. The auction of Harvest Gifts raised £242.75 and £250 has been sent to St. Michael's School, Malawi. There is information and pictures about the school at the back of church.
