On Sunday, 1st October, the Rev’d Annette Miller led the annual Harvest Festival Service at St Paul’s.
Afterwards the congregation gathered in the social area to enjoy a delicious meal served by the Old School Kitchen, which was followed by a range of mouth-watering desserts supplied by members. A general knowledge quiz with a harvest theme kept everyone talking!
The church was beautifully decorated, and monetary donations were given to the Bishop’s Harvest Appeal – ‘A fair share – a harvest of justice and peace’, for disadvantaged women and families in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories and in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
In addition a special harvest delivery was taken to the Barrow Foodbank.
