This year we are combining our Benefice Harvest Service with a Supper in the newly re-ordered Enstone Church. It will be similar to the very popular Maundy Thursday Supper and Communion. The service and supper will take place at tables set out in the centre of the Church. It will be a feast with hymns, a simple supper of cottage pie followed by apple pie or crumble, with prayers and Communion interspersed between courses.
We very much hope you will want to join us as we give thanks to God for the blessing of harvest. Booking is essential to help with catering. You can do so by clicking here or leaving a message on 01608 676572. Please do so before Sunday 23rd September.
As in previous years, we are going to celebrate the theme of Harvest and Creation throughout October by having at least one harvest hymn each week on the following weeks:- 7th October in Spelsbury; 14th October at Ascott and 28th October in Chadlington.
