Harvest Weekend at St Andrew’s

Church Cleaning Saturday 22 October 10:00-13:00

Come and join us to clean the silver, dust the cobwebs, and have a chat, over a cup of tea and some cake – All welcome!
During these hours, the Community Centre will be open for anyone who would like to bring and deposit goods for the next day. The Wardens and/or other Council members present will take care of the goods and make sure everything will be presented in front of the altar.

We will celebrate a Harvest Festival Service at St Andrew’s on Sunday, 23rd October. At a time when we have signs all around us of the harvest of the fruits of the earth, it is a day of pause to celebrate God’s provision and restoration.

Any food items collected will be donated to Sozialwerk Pfarrer Sieber in Zurich.
Money collected at our Harvest Festival Service will be matched from St Andrew’s funds and donated to the Salvation Army Open Heart project. Please give as generously as you can to these two local projects.

Sozialwerk Pfarrer Sieber Around a hundred meals are cooked in a catering facility every day, enabling homeless people to receive wholesome, healthy meals. In addition, those affected by poverty receive food in household quantities. People with limited abilities are able to work in food processing and delivery.

Open Heart The Centre offers a meeting place and counselling support for homeless people and people with addictions. Services include outreach on the street, counselling and care (food, clothing, etc.), as well as accompaniment to medical and official appointments. Showers are available three times a week as well as emergency overnight places from January to April.
