Thank you to everyone involved with our special service of Harvest Thanksgiving which took place on Sunday 14th October. Whether you helped to decorate the church, donated items for our harvest collection, prepared the 'Ploughmans and Puds' lunch, or simply came along to participate in it all - we appreciated it!

It was a full parade service and we were delighted to be joined by so many members of the scouting and girlguiding groups as well as their parents and carers.

A bountiful selection of toiletries and food items were presented to the Colchester Foodbank and Beacon House; and the Ploughmans and Puds raised a good amount to help church funds. 

We also announced this year's launch of our Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal.
