HARVEST 2020 (26-27th Sept)

Like many things this year Harvest will look a little different in our church. But the themes that surround the festival of : thanksgiving, celebration, remembering and stewardship remain as important this year, if not more so.

Due to limited numbers in our Church services we are not able to host all that may wish to come, so we have had to make other arrangements. Therefore, we would value your help and support as we celebrate this festival in the following way.

We shall again be collecting for our local Paddock Wood Food Store which seeks to support and help those living in challenging situations, by providing much needed food parcels.

On Saturday 26th September our church will be open from 10.00am – 4.00pm to receive your gifts of non perishable items. You will be guided to a windowsill or ledge and asked to place your items there. These items will remain here for the service and until later that week before the Foodstore helpers come and retrieve the items.

HARVEST FAMILY QUIZ NIGHT

On Saturday 26th September St Andrew’s will be hosting a Family Harvest Quiz Night via Zoom. Open to anyone who would like to join us simply email our Children and families worker Hanna Rosser on [email protected] and she will send you by return the login in details for the evening. It will be a great way to get to know others at St Andrew’s….

HARVEST MEAL

Finally, we are encouraging anyone who reads this page to join us in setting aside one meal during the Harvest weekend to remember and reflect. Using the short interactive worship sheet below, reflect on some of those themes mentioned above. It takes you from the preparation of the meal through to its eating and is can be used in a family unit or on your own.

Easter Morning

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Luke 24:1-6

Good Friday burial

Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man,  who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea, and he himself was waiting for the kingdom of God.  Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body.  Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid.  It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.  The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it.  Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment. Luke 23:50-56
