In preparation for the Harvest Festival services to be held at St John the Baptist Church we would be very grateful for donations of fruit, vegetables, tinned or packet food and some greenery for our display in the Church porch. After the services, gifts of food will be taken to the Riversdale Centre in Thetford where it will be used to help provide meals. Please could donations of food be left in the Technology Room on the morning of Thursday 6th October 2016.
Traditionally, the children also bring in a small item of food to be placed on the altar during our School Harvest Festival service – this may be brought into school on the morning of the service.
You are very welcome to come join us at our School Harvest Festival service which will be at 2pm on Friday 7th October. The Church Harvest Festival service and lunch will take place on Sunday 9th October. Thank you very much for your support.
Carol McGahan and Kim Lambert
