Harvest Services in London. Hmm, well, we've valiantly pressed on with them through the years, but the last few years have shown that they have little contact with non-Christians. So last year we tried something different. It was a great success. And with a few minor changes we're repeating the event this Sunday at 5pm, our International Harvest Event.
We'll set out table and chairs in the space where our pews normally are, and will set out a range of harvest-related activities and items. For the children there's a chance to try out instruments from around the world, plenty of craft activities and an expert face-painter. There's superb international food for all, including a BBQ on the forecourt. We have representatives from Tearfund, Traidcraft and Compassion UK, who will be informing us of the work of Christian relief and charitable works around the world, and providing opportunities to support their ministries. We will watch a brief DVD about what God is doing in His world, and then one of our members will be sharing the Gospel message with all assembled.
As you can see, this is a lot of hard work for all involved, but it's an effort which we believe truly honours the Lord. We're inviting many friends to join us, and have put the word around our community. We want to witness to the reality of a grace-giving and compassionate God, and to hear His Gospel of grace together. Please pray with us for the event, and if you're local, do come along!
