Harvest Thanksgiving

It was a great delight to welcome a large congregation full of children and families to our Harvest celebrations.

A special welcome was extended to the Brownies and their leaders.  All our young people, including our own Sunday school took part in the service and it was delight to see the children welcome the Gospel for the day by cheering and waving the harvest ribbons they had made and leading the intercessions. The children also contributed by making three harvest panels for the high altar, a scarecrow and a harvest tree. The Sunday school acted out a poem around the word HARVEST.

After the service there was a fish and chip lunch served in the organ transept and many people stayed and participated.

The proceeds from the sale of the fresh harvest produce was £66.50 and given to Christian Aid.  All non-perishable items were taken to the Lantern Centre in Weymouth.

The church was decorated beautifully for Harvest and Canon Andrew extended a thank you to members of the flower rota during the Parish Eucharist.

    Holy Trinity Church Roof

    All the scaffolding came down at the end of June and we can report that the roof is now, as far as we are aware, waterproof. This of course came with a huge cost but needed to be done. We are now applying for grants to see if we can cover more of the cost of £40.000 to pay for it. Last December we received £10,000 from the Muton Trust for which we are extremely grateful; and we hope to be successful this November for a further grant of £8,000. Any kind donations thankfully received! We are about £12,000 short of our target to replenish our much diminished funds.. IF the sale of St Nicholas goes without a hitch then the PCC has agreed to make up the shortfall from the sale proceeds.

Vicar’s letter for October 2018

“I’m a country person at heart! I was brought up in a small country town in North Cornwall with a thriving market each week. Sadly it is all now long gone. But as children my brothers and I used to love to go to the livestock market and watch all the farmers bringing their livestock and produce to market. At Harvest thanksgiving we would take our harvest gifts to church and I remember a wonderful harvest choral evensong and a hearty harvest supper which everybody was involved with.”
