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.
