Harvest Festival was celebrated at St. Disen’s with a service taken by Revd Keith Gale. As well as prayers offered for farmers, fishermen and those in the food distribution industry, the main focus of the service was on the need to share our good fortune with others, both in this country and world-wide.
Keith spoke about the work of CHAT (Church Housing Aid in Tiverton), for whom he is a volunteer worker and which is one of St. Disen’s regular charities. A collection of items for CHAT was blessed during the service and there was also a special collection for the hurricane relief fund in Indonesia.
After the service, members of the congregation and others enjoyed a splendid three course meal in St. Disen’s Hall. Our thanks to all who helped prepare, serve and clear up afterwards.
