In preparation for the Harvest Festival services to be held at St John the Baptist Church, we are collecting produce to decorate the Church porch. We would love to be able to fill the porch with fruit, vegetables and tinned or packet food. This will then be taken to the Riversdale Centre in Thetford where it will be used to provide meals for those in need, so please give generously to this worthwhile cause. Also, if anyone has any greenery that they would be prepared to bring in we would be very grateful – please let Carol or Kim know. Donations of food can be left in the Technology Room on the morning of Wednesday 4th October 2017.
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 and join us at our School Harvest Festival service which will be at 2pm on Friday 6th October. The Church Harvest Festival service and lunch will take place on Sunday 8th October. Thank you very much for your support.
Carol McGahan and Kim Lambert
