Did You know? (Sunday, October 25, 2020)

The Harvest service provides an opportunity for worshippers to thank God for all the things God has provided for them and others in the world. Since the middle of the 19th century, many Christian Churches celebrate Harvest festival at a time of the year which is appropriate for them. At this festival, the church is decorated with harvest produce, which traditionally would be distributed to the poor and needy after the service.
