Harvest Festival

Harvest Festival is on Sunday 7th October 2018.  We warmly invite you to join us for our Harvest celebrations!

We have two services that day:

10am      Harvest Festival Service for all ages
6pm       Harvest Songs of Praise

Please do stay and chat over tea, coffee and homemade cakes after both services.

 

This year our Harvest collections will be given to Christian Aid’s Harvest Appeal to support women like Aster.  Aster was overburdened because she is a woman. Farming, cooking, carrying firewood – life was a constant struggle.  But Aster refused to give up. She’s come together with women in her village, in Ethiopia, to open a shop powered by the sun. With training from our partner, Aster and her 'sisters' have turned their shop into a thriving business. 

The women are so much stronger together. They sell fresh water and soap, and provide mobile phone charging at the shop. This brings in vital money for their families, and renewable energy for their community –reducing their reliance on firewood.  Aster now has freedom and power over her own life. She’s able to pay for her children's healthcare, send them to school and save for her young family's future.

Will you ‘#StandTogether’ with women like Aster?

If you have never been to The Good Shepherd – why not come along and find out what your local church has to offer?  If you have not been for a while – come and renew old friendships!  We would love you to join us for Harvest.
