People living in Peasedown St John, Wellow and Shoscombe will have lots of opportunities to get involved in a wide range of activities this Harvest.
Anglican churches in all three parishes, which make up the St J’s Group, have put together an action-programme over the Harvest weekend.
Leader of all three parishes, Revd Matthew Street, said: “Harvest is the time of the year we can all come together to thank God for our food, and all the gifts the land around us provides from clothing to furniture.
“Whether you are two years old, or 102 years old, come along to one of our Harvest celebration events this year.”
Harvest is on Sunday 27th September, with the following events taking place:
- 10 am – Harvest Holy Communion – St James’ Church Foxcote;
- 10.30 am – Morning Praise – St John’s Church, Peasedown St John;
- 11.15 am – Harvest Praise – St Julian’s Church, Wellow;
- 4.30 pm – Soul Food Harvest Festival – Peasedown Youth Centre
The Harvest theme across all the churches this year will be ‘Ezra shares heavenly food’ with a special focus on the biblical passage Nehemiah 8: 1-18 – which demonstrates the importance of sharing spiritual knowledge and truths from God with those around us.
Matthew added: “This powerful message from the Bible calls us to share wisdom and knowledge that we receive from God.
“The Lord often gives messages and visions to his children, in a prophetic manner, which are for the benefit of us all.
“Just as Harvest can make a difference by the food it provides, spiritual knowledge can also be life changing, should we choose to listen to the Word of God.
“Come along to one of our Harvest festivals this year, everyone and anyone will be given a warm welcome.”
