Harvest Services


Come, ye thankful people, come
raise the song of harvest-home!

Across the benefice, farmers have been gathering in their grain crops.  In our gardens and on our allotments, our fruit and vegetables are growing and ripening.  It's a sign that it's nearly time to celebrate this year's harvest and give thanks to God for the fruits of his creation.

We invite you to come and join us at one or more of our harvest festival services.

Messy Harvest
Sywell CEVA Primary School
Sunday 22 September 2019 - 11am

An all-age and action-packed service.  There will be plenty of crafts, some singing, and prayers and a short talk.  Come and enjoy giving thanks to God for all that he has given us, including the beauty and fruitfulness of his creation, and join with us in considering the needs of those less fortunate than ourselves.  Please bring gifts of tinned and dried foods for us to take to the Daylight Centre which cares for the hungry and homeless.

Harvest Songs of Praise
St. Leonard's - Hardwick
Sunday 22 September 2019 - 6pm

A service of traditional harvest hymns, readings and poems for all the family to enjoy.  Our beautiful church will be decorated with flowers and fresh produce.  All the produce (fresh, dried and tinned), cakes, plants, etc. that you bring to decorate the church and celebrate this year's harvest will be auctioned at the Harvest Supper on Monday evening (see below).  Proceeds will go to church funds.

Harvest Supper
Village Hall - Hardwick
Monday 23 September 2019 - 7pm

Come and join us for a hot two-course meal in a friendly village setting.  Entry £6 includes a glass or two of cider (or alternative soft drink).  If you are planning on coming, please let Jackie Prime know for catering purposes.  Her number is (01933) 223137.

Harvest Songs of Praise
All Saints Church - Mears Ashby
Sunday 29 September 2019 - 6pm

A service of harvest hymns, readings and poems in a church decorated with flowers and fresh produce.  In the service, we will say a big "THANK YOU" to all the teams of people who help look after the church and its churchyard.  We'll also be inviting the children and families of our village school to be part of the celebrations, including voting for their favourite vegetables.  Please bring donations of tinned and dried food for the Daylight Centre in Wellingborough.  Refreshments will be served after the service.  Do stay on, if you can.

For more details of our Harvest celebrations, please contact our vicar - Revd Katrina or one of our churchwardens.
