October 2012

We opened October with the bible fellowship on Tuesday the 2nd.  Our pastor Jonathan started  a short series of studies about heaven and the afterlife.  This first session was a look at what the old testament has to say on the subject.  The next session was on the 16th.
October the 6th and 7th was the Harvest Festival weekend.  Saturday morning was a coffee morning, and an opportunity to meet, bring gifts to the harvest, and decorate the church.  

We had requested that the gifts be dry and long life goods as they were to begiven to St. Wilfrid's centre in the city to support their work with the disadvantaged.  Contributions were received during the services on Sunday as well.
 Monday the 8th was our monthly men's breakfast.  David started work on clearing the square for the bonfire next month.
On Thursday the 11th we held our annual "Five Crops and Choruses".  This is a five course meal with seasonal songs.
The Ladies' meeting met on the 17th, Elaine led the meeting in making decorative crafts.

On the 31st October we held our annual Festival of Light where we made angels,
 pumpkin lanterns
 ate supper,
 demonstrated the lanterns,
and then went home.
The trees are definitely showing their autumn colours now.
