I hope you agree that all the celebrations we had for our Harvest Weekend were truly magnificent! The amount of special memorabilia that folk routed out of their lofts and from the back of cupboards etc, and brought along for the displays was great - and provoked much discussion and fond memories. It was lovely to see how many people pitched in and cheerfully helped throughout the weekend, and so many thanks to everyone who helped - I won't name you all as I am bound to miss someone out, but these events can only happen with this input from all our church family.
We were delighted to have the WW1 display, and also a display by the Snow Angels social enterprise. In the church, which had been dressed beautifully, the evocative images of historic pictures projected onto the wall was a perfect backdrop to the choirs who entertained us during the day. Many thanks to Frodsham Townswoman's Guild choir, and also to Frodsham Sings, the Frodsham Community choir. (Both choirs have promised to return at some point ...!)
The three Sunday services were all very well attended, and the Bring and Share Lunch provided a chance for us to sit and relax with some lovely food and good conversation.
Finally, Monday afternoon's Harvest Praise service rounded off the weekend, when we welcomed many of our older friends to join us for a short service led by Edgar Gregory, followed by tea and cake in the Hall.
Although the weekend was not about fund-raising, we did manage to make a profit of £250 from the sales of food, and this will be divided between our two church charities, Salvation Army International and the International Justice Mission.
