Due to Covid 19 current guidelines, our usual Harvest services cannot happen this year. Harvest Festival is often a service which brings together all ages to celebrate God's goodness in creation and to remember our responsibility to care for those who do not have as much as us.
St Mabyn and St Tudy church are rallying to this situation however and are organising a Parish Harvest Giving on Saturday 3rd October between 10am - 12 noon. We are kindly asking everyone to donate food items. Donations can be brought to St Mabyn or St Tudy village hall on this day. We will be following strict Covid guidelines. In particular, we are looking for non perishable foods such as packets of pasta, rice, biscuits, tins and jars; all will be very welcome.
Your donations, however small or large, will be given to the Food bank and St Petrocs homeless charity as the need for food parcels has massively increased. This isn't a short term problem, exacerbated by the Covid 19 pandemic.
Food banks can help to restore dignity and revive hope by offering support within our communities. None of us ever know when we might experience hard times and this need is very real. So if you know of anyone who might need that help now, please let our Rector David Seymour know, tel 01208 850088. This information is in strictest confidence of course. With Grateful thanks in anticipation of your generosity ~ Jan Fisher, Lay Pastoral Minister for Camel Side Benefice.
