Harvest Festival & Bread Making Competition – Sun 29th Sept

Our Harvest Festival is Sunday 29th September at 4.30pm followed by a bring and share afternoon tea.

 

This year we have made it a bit different and are having a (non compulsory!) bread making competition! See the image below for more information.   The Brownies are going to be helping us, and we think it is going to be fun.

Tinned and dried offerings will be going to local charities CIRDIC and Readifood.

If you can’t make it to this, you’ll get a second chance, as Messy Church on Saturday 5th October is going to be all about Harvest (that’s 3.30 – 5.00 pm, with crafts, singing, talk and a meal too).

Everyone is welcome, please join us.
