All Saints C of E Church, Great Oakley - Service for HARVEST FESTIVAL
10:00 AM - A Harvest Festival service celebrating, with gratitude, the 2017 harvest. Today we especially invite anyone to join us who, for any reason, has not felt drawn to Christ's church for a period of time - short, long or ages.

Today we give thanks to God for the good things we have gained in this year's harvest - for the people who have worked for a good crop and we remember those in God's world who do not have the good things we do.

If we don't know you and seem slow to speak to you, please approach any of us and show us up! Everybody is welcome to this and every service at All Saints!
