Ilkley church appeals for food bank donations to mark harvest celebrations
12:00pm Monday 9th September 2013 in News
A church is asking its congregation to bring in produce from their gardens and allotments from today as it begins its harvest celebrations.
Christchurch, The Grove, Ilkley, will be running a harvest stall in its foyer, and donating all proceeds to a local food bank.
During next week the Coffee Centre, open from 10am to 4pm, will have a special harvest menu and there will be a harvest supper and barn dance on Saturday.
On Friday, the shopper’s service at 10.30am will be the first harvest service, followed by harvest celebrations on Sunday at 9am and 10.30am.
Contributions of tinned and dried goods will be received for a local food bank.
Finally, on Sunday evening at 6.30pm there will be a harvest Songs of Praise service, and people are invited to suggest their favourite hymns and why by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
