B Cador: October 2017
The children led a lovely Harvest Service at St Margaret's Church this afternoon.
After a warm welcome from Reverend Alison, our younger children from Base 1 retold the story of The Little Red Hen interspersed with lovely singing of new Harvest songs by the rest of the school. The Parable of the Sower was retold by Base 4.
Throughout the service whether through story, Bible reading, song or the handing out of tiny seeds to the congregation, we were all left to think about the seed; not only the seed of the harvest but also the seed of friendship.
If every person,
with a friendly smile,
Gave a friendly word,
Walked the extra mile.
In rain and sunshine
Each would go their way
And sow the seeds of friendship.
Our harvest donation this year will go to the Nantwich Foodback as we think on the final words of one of our songs sung today:
For anyone needing food,
We're sharing what we have today.
We have already started recieving donations for Nantwich Foodbank and will continue to receive donations in school and will be handing them over to the Foodbank at the end of the week.
Thank you to all who joined us this afternoon. We received a lot of lovely comments about the service. A big thank you to the children and staff for preparing the service and to all those who have already sent in donations. We know they will be very much appreciated.
