Bible Reading: Eccelesiastes 3: There is a time for everything.


This time of year is a season fro celebrating Harvest time and giving thanks for good things in our lives; nature, food, people around us, security and the preparing for the next season.

This autumn may feel even more transitional with the changing landscape of the pandemic and it’s rules and restrictions.


God is and can be found in all these situations, so here are a few ideas to connect with God, creation, the seasons and ourselves. Pick some or all from the Activity Menu during the week. Share some pictures or brign thigns along to the childrens online groups on Sunday 25th October.


Enjoy and give thanks!
