Harvest services and events

Bread, wheat and grainsWe’ll be celebrating Harvest in Cinderford and Littledean with services and events around the Benefice.

There are a number of services and harvest suppers with something for everyone. You’re very welcome to attend as many events as you like.

St John’s, Cinderford

Sunday 16 September, a Harvest Service at 6 pm followed by Harvest Supper.

St Stephen’s, Cinderford

Sunday 23 September, All Age Harvest Service at 11 am followed by Fellowship Lunch and a Fairtrade BakeOff.

The ‘rules’ for the Harvest BakeOff are simple, try and include as many Fairtrade or locally produced ingredients in as possible! Things grown in Cinderford are extra special!

There will be two categories, freestyle – so your entry could be anything from an apple pie to plum chutney and homemade crackers.

The second category will be for entires themed around the ideas we will be covering in our Harvest service – looking at how climate change is affecting our neighbours around the world and the difference solar panels are making to women supported by Christian Aid. Let your creative juices flow, maybe your cake will have a mirror glaze like a solar panel, or represent togetherness; the choice is yours.

Entries will be judged on the number of Fairtrade or locally produced ingredients along with overall appearance and taste!

As always, there will be prizes in children’s and adult categories. Ready, steady … bake!!!

Entries will be consumed as pudding after Fellowship Lunch on the same Sunday (lunch starts at 12.30 pm for anyone who wants to join in eating!) and donations will be sent to Christian Aid.
