Join us on Sunday 2nd October for Harvest Celebrations!
We offer a choice of 2 services – our main Harvest service will be at 10am or a special family-friendly Harvest Kid’s Worship at 3:30pm.
This year, we are supporting the Bishop’s Annual Harvest Appeal for the lives of people in Mozambique who have been traumatised and displaced by conflict. Having fled to safety, life still isn’t easy, and many are losing hope. Your support will help on-the-ground, local church partners to reach the most vulnerable; helping to change lives, transform communities and show God’s love where it is needed most.
