Harvest Sunday 8th October 2017


The church was beautifully decorated for Harvest Sunday when St Disens celebrated the harvest with a special service including well-known harvest hymns such as ‘Come Ye Thankful People Come’ followed by a lovely three course lunch.

With food from around the world available to us today at the click of a button it is all too easy to forget the importance of the harvest.  But many people are struggling to get enough food and our world faces a variety of environmental problems that threaten our future food supply.  Our ‘harvest homily’ exhorted us, therefore, to take our thanksgiving for harvests safely gathered in to a new concern for the whole world.

Our thanks go to all who decorated the church, cooked and served the lunch, and cleared away afterwards!
