Sunday 27th September
This Sunday, at 10am, we will celebrate Harvest Festival. As part of her training to be a Licenced Lay Minister, Emma Parren will be leading us in a creation-themed service. Emma has found some beautiful liturgy - this offertory prayer gives you a flavour of what's in store:
Almighty God, Creator,
the morning is Yours, rising into fullness.
The summer is Yours, dipping into autumn.
Eternity is Yours, dipping into time.
The vibrant grasses,
the scent of flowers,
the lichen on the rocks,
the tang of seaweed,
all are Yours.
Gladly we live in this garden of Your creating
and we give back to you our offerings
of money, food and other goods.
Please use them for the good of your creation.
Please bring Harvest donations for the food table/bank, i.e. non-perishable, including baby food and sanitary items.
If you'd like to be in church, please book your place, as below. Please book by 12 noon on Saturday.
If you are joining by Zoom, here is the service sheet. If you're coming to church, the service sheet will be supplied.
Emma would also appreciate feedback to help her with her training. Here is the feedback form, or if you would like to complete it online, here is the link: https://forms.gle/eEEczrUTYAkSggUA7
We're beginning to get more used to a different way of being in church, but if you haven't been yet, please be aware that it's a very different experience from before lockdown. Please see below for more information.
