62+ children from Year 4 Crook Primary School joined the chapel’s Harvest Celebrations in a short Thanksgiving service on Wednesday 21st September 2016. The children had generously brought tins and dried foodstuffs which were later given to the Crook Food Bank Appeal.
After opening prayers and a harvest song Revd Anglesea reminded the children that H-A-R-V-E-S-T is a time when we thank God for the Harvest and for the food he provides. With the help of the children the Harvest letters were re-arranged to spell the following words:-
H-A-V-E: We thanked God for food to eat, for sun and rain to help our food to grow
E-A-T: We thanked God for food we like to eat, like pizza and fish and chips
R-E-S-T: We thanked God for the farmers who will need to rest after a busy harvest season
S-T-A-R-V-E: We think about people in poorer countries who do not have enough to eat
S-H-A-R-E: We remember people who we can share our food with, the poor, the elderly and food banks
S-A-V-E: We thanked God for Harvest food that we can freeze and save foodstuffs for the winter
H-A-R-V-E-S-T: A time then to thank God for his care and goodness to us.
The service ended with a hymn and a final prayer.
Thank you Crook Primary School.
