Harvest Festival Service at St Bartholomew's Church, Church Minshull will be held on Sunday 16th October at 11am.
We are really fortunate to have Bishop John Hayden lead this special Service of thanksgiving. Bishop John led and oversaw the building and development of KITETO Christian College and Cathedral, and churches and schools throughout the southern region of Tanzania. He is now back in the UK but continues to make visits to Kiteto to oversee the projects .
The Service is followed by Harvest lunch — All Welcome
St Bart's Church will be open from 10am — 3pm from Wednesday 12th October to Saturday 15th October to receive your Harvest gifts of tinned and dried foods for the Food bank. This year we are supporting St Paul's Pantry, which is part of Christian Concern in Crewe.
As you will see from the photo we collected a large amount of food for the food bank last year, and we are hoping to repeat again this year.
