St Leonard’s School Celebrates Harvest
It was a delight to welcome the children and staff of St Leonard’s CE primary school into Church this afternoon for their Harvest Celebration along with Church members and parents.
The children led the service which included the challenge to consider the food miles involved in getting food onto our plates. We were also encouraged to give generously to the work of the local food bank which provides food for people facing a time of financial hardship. A collecting box is permanently available in the porch of St Leonard’s Church to receive your donations.
Our Acting Rector, Revd Colin Resch shared the parable of the sower and encouraged us to consider seriously the seed that God has sown in our own hearts and to see it grow and bear fruit in our own lives and in the lives of those around us.
Thank you to everyone who came and joined in the service with us, despite the rainfall that greeted us on our way in and out again.
