HARVEST SERVICE & DONATIONS
Thank you for bringing in your Mission Boxes.
Here are the amounts collected – BMS - £61.76 and CWM - £32.00
Our Harvest service is on Sunday 29th September. Last year we decided to give all to HAB (Homeless Action in Barnet) rather than give again to Christian Aid, alternating with Operation Agri each Harvest.
HAB is on our doorstep in North Finchley, there is still a real need there to support the Homeless Refugees who go there for lunch. They are given a good meal Monday to Friday and they can see a doctor, a nurse, a dentist, have a shower as well as support to help them be re housed or find work. Those who run the centre are absolutely dedicated.
We are supporting them this year too, with tins and packets of food, toiletries and clean clothing, mainly for men, but also women and especially shoes and new socks and new underwear. (Please see list of suitable, suggested and needed items for HAB below).
We will deliver whatever is presented at Church at that service of thanksgiving.
Last year we gave out envelopes for donations for HAB. They were delighted by our giving. Please give if you are able, cash or cheques made payable to HAB.
The Deacons have planned to have a “Shared Lunch” in the Parlour following the service on the 29th September. We would like all those who are able and want to share lunch, to bring prepared dishes of food, either a main dish, sweet or a drink.
These events are great when we can join together in the true fellowship and enjoy each other’s company.
We would love to see you all there.
