School visit after harvest

Monday 8th October 2012
Who has eaten half the harvest loaf?

Answer:  It was Year 5 of Bellingham Middle School who  came as part of their topic on local community (geography and heritage) and asked why there was so much food in church and was that really an enormous loaf of bread on the altar.  
At Harvest Festival we give thanks to God for all the good things in our lives and we remember to share them with other people.  so it seemed a good idea to break the loaf and give some to everyone who wanted a piece.  Just at that moment some strangers came into the church to  have a look round; so they were able to enjoy our harvest loaf  too.  (I hope the Baker is reading this so that he knows how much his offering was appreciated.)
