You may or
may not be aware that the harvest was difficult this year. With the extreme sunshine and dry weather,
the crops struggled to grow and then when they were ready it was necessary to
act quick and harvest ended up being shorter than usual. Short stalks and a short sharp harvest! Harvest Havoc!
most of us are disconnected from the harvest these days we don’t know where our
food comes from and the fluctuations in price.
Did you know that straw and hay reached rare high prices this
summer? Some of us do know that we can
buy local and reduce food miles or organic and reduce chemical input but there
is more to think about. Do we remember
that unless there is rain and sunshine in sufficient measure then nothing grows? These things, indeed all things, are in God’s
hands and it is good to thank Him for them.
At 5pm October
the 7th you are invited to join the church family at Trinity to
celebrate another harvest safely gathered in.
Our usual worship band will lead some lively corporate singing and
hopefully we will have some special music too.
There will be a chance to consider the Bible’s view of ‘all the good
gifts around us’ and perhaps to create a picture of our own. All to be followed by a Harvest Tea and time
to chat and enjoy the evening.
evening at 5pm there is another chance to hear what St. Matthew thinks about
the Lord Jesus as we study his gospel together, you will be most welcome to
come to these services too.
family meet regularly on Sundays at 10:00a.m. to pray, followed by our worship
and relevant Bible Teaching at 10:30a.m. There’s always a warm welcome, an all-age
programme and refreshments follow.
If you would like us to pray for you then

programmes although the Youth Work will break for Half Term: Meeting Place (Tuesday 2nd),
