OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS ALL THE SEPARATE PARISHES
HAVE BEEN CELEBRATING THEIR HARVEST FESTIVALS.
WITH THE EXCEPTIONAL WEATHER THIS YEAR PRODUCING OUR CROPS HAS BEEN VERY CHALLENGING.
For all people in their varied jobs Thanksgiving was given to God for a years work completed and prayers offered for our continuing success in supporting the communities they work for..
Collections have been made for the food bank
Duddington held the first service, an Evensong
accompanied by the Tudor Quire followed by a Harvest Supper.
Thank you to everyone who made our Harvest Festival such a success.
The Church was beautifully decorated and lunch was delicious!
Wakerley with Barrowden
With the closure of Barrowden Church all were made welcome at Wakerley their sister Parish.
Evensong was sung with the Tudor Quire singing the psalms and anthems.
Followed by excellent refreshments.
Tixover completed the series where a a farming community completed the day with Evensong in the BCP old tradition and Harvest Supper.
