This Sunday sees the celebration of Harvest Festival by the congregation at The Cross on Yew Lane (see diary page for details), this year the official collection from the church will support the work of the local PXI – Food Bank project based at Mount Tabor.
That said, church members, and local Abundance volunteers have been out and about today bringing in their own local harvest of apples (Lord Lambournes to be specific) grown in one of the houses round Creswick area. The apples that have been harvested are now safely stored at Mount Tabor. This year already Abundance (in North Sheffield) has gathered in around 400llbs of apples and pears from the area, all of which will be put to good use.In the next few weeks it will be distributed to local groups, and for use in local events for making apple juice and chutney, and of course numerous pies and crumbles.
Obviously we’d like to thank Jean for the offering of her trees into this years harvest, and to everyone who helped today, but as it harvest time lets also take a moment out to give a special thanks to God.
