Our HARVEST FESTIVAL will be celebrated on Sunday 11th October. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will not be able to receive goods this year. Instead, donations are invited for our chosen charity, the Folkestone Rainbow Centre. Please place cash or cheques made payable to ‘Folkestone Rainbow Centre’ in an envelope marked ‘Rainbow Centre’ and put in our donation box inside the church door, or post to our parish office (see the Contact page).
More information about the Rainbow Centre can be found at https://www.rainbow-centre.org/
A Prayer Card for Harvest to Advent
Please find attached a digital version of our Harvest to Advent Prayer Card. We are still unable to send out paper copies, but we hope you will enjoy this pdf version, and find creative ways to use it in worship and prayer over the coming months.
The card touches on themes connected to Harvest, of course, but also has some prayers and questions which connect to the Listening and Discerning conversations currently happening around the diocese. In a season reflecting and discerning seem more complex yet more critical than ever, we hope it will be both useful and heartening.
An illustrated book summarising the Finding Eanswythe research is now available from the Church, price £5.
Recipes of Hope and Hospitality
Available from the church in packs of 10 cards for £5, or by calling Pam Keeling on 01303 244876.
