We gather for our Harvest Festival to celebrate the abundance that God has blessed us with, and to give Him thanks. As we celebrate we remember those who struggle to put food on their table, both locally and across the world.

We will gather tins and packets to pass on to the Poole Foodbank and use fresh fruit and vegetables to raise money for Christian Aid’s Harvest Appeal in Kenya

This Harvest prayer comes from Esther Musili, executive director of ADSE, a branch of the Anglican Church in Kenya.

O Lord our God,
We pray that the seed we sow
today will bring a harvest that
causes continued dew upon the
earth to sustain the seed in our hands.

May we always have seed to sow
and rejoice when we see the
transformation that reflects the image
of God in your people all over the world.

Amen.
