|Hello everyone. |
Good morning. Thank you to Bridget for your sermon, to Mark for the Harvest readings, to Andrew for the song “Light of the world”, to Gill for the young people’s activities, and to Joy for leading our prayers.
As you will see in this virtual service, the Church has been beautifully decorated for Harvest. Our sincere thanks to Sara, Marva and Joy for making the church look so cherished for our three week long celebration of Harvest this year.
This year our Harvest appeal will go to support the work of the Leeds North West Foodbank. If you aren’t coming back to Church at this point in time but would like to give at Harvest-time you might wish to make a donation to the Trussell Trust who support the work of all 1,200 foodbanks in the UK.
A Harvest collect:
Eternal God, you crown the year with your goodness
and you give us the fruits of the earth in their season:
grant that we may use them for the relief of those in need
and to your glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
