Bishop of Bradford to lead harvest service at Otley
9:00am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
The Bishop of Bradford will lead a harvest service this weekend.
The event is being held at All Saints Parish Church, in Otley, on Sunday in conjunction with Yorkshire Agricultural Society, which runs a harvest service at a different church each year.
Bishop of Bradford, the Right Rev Nick Baines, will preach while representatives from Otley Show and Wharfedale Farmers Auction Mart, Janet Raw and Ian Smith, will bring along symbols of their work to give thanks.
The Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire, Lord Crathorne, is also due to attend, and the service will feature a video by the Tearfund charity showing images of harvest in Africa.
There will also be a collection of food for the Otley food bank and a cash collection that will be shared between the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution and the food bank, which organisers are hoping to have up and running by late November.
