Altar and harvest collectionHarvest Praise

Thank you to everyone involved with our Harvest Festival which took place on Sunday 8th October. It was a special service of praise and thanksgiving, including a performance from our wonderful puppets.

Whether you helped to decorate the church, donated items for our harvest collection to Beacon House and the Colchester Foodbank, helped with our puppets, prepared the 'Ploughmans and Puds' lunch which followed the service, or simply came along to participate - a big thank you!

Our Shoebox Appeal for Operation Christmas Child was 'officially' launched too, with a film showing the joy each gift-filled shoebox brings to a child living in poverty. For more information please click here.

Please note that the collection date for the shoeboxes is earlier this year so that we can ensure the shoeboxes arrive at their destination in good time. Therefore, please bring along your filled shoeboxes to a special Thank You Service for all the family at 10.15am on 19th November.
