Harvest Service at St Marys

The 9.45am service on Sunday 25th September will be special. It is Harvest Sunday. Jan will be leading the service. It will be the 20th anniversary of her ordination. Judy will be preaching. It will be her very last Sunday as an archdeacon.

The theme for this year’s Harvest Festival is “Support for Refugees” and the parish is delighted to be working in collaboration with Charlbury Refugee Action Group (CRAG) to collect items that are very much in need by refugees from all countries, including Ukraine, Afghanistan and the Middle East. 

Below is a list of the items that are most needed.   A collection point will be set up in the Memorial Chapel from Saturday 17 September to Sunday 25 September.   CRAG will then arrange for its distribution to those most in need.    

Please dig deep and bring as much as you can from the list. 

Tents and backpacks Men’s and boy’s coats  (especially small and medium) Sleeping bags and blankets 
Jogging bottoms or jeans  (size 26-34 ideally) New boxer shorts Socks, hats, gloves 
Hoodies and jumpers Trainers Rain ponchos 
Unlocked mobile phones  (with chargers) Powerbanks Tarpaulin 

 Could you please ensure everything is clean, undamaged, in working order and in one piece before dropping it off at the church.
