Information on the coming Sunday's service is below.
Sunday 2nd October at 10am
led by Rev Louise Vincer
with music led by our choir & organist
This Sunday we have a service to celebrate Harvest Festival - everybody is welcome to join us as we thank God for His generous provision for us. To find out what to expect watch this short video by Rev Louise in which she tells you all about it.
We will also be remembering those less fortunate than ourselves as we follow the tradition of recent years by receiving offerings to be made available to those in our community who are unable to afford the food they need for their families. Please bring a generous offering of non perishable food or ready meals that will be donated to Chartham's Village Pantry which is in our Village Hall and is managed by the Chartham branch of Canterbury's City Church. The items that are most helpful to people in need are:
Tinned meat products such as, stews, curries, chillies, pies, ham, spam, corned beef, etc.
Tinned vegetables including potatoes
Jars of sauces
Tea, Coffee, sugar
Long-life milk and juice
Spreads - jams, peanut butter, Marmite
