Harvest Praise

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.
  • Tuna fish
  • Tinned vegetables including potatoes
  • Jars of sauces 
  • Tea, Coffee, sugar
  • Long-life milk and juice
  • Squash
  • Spreads - jams, peanut butter, Marmite 
  • Biscuits
  • Crisps 
  • Cooking Oil
  • Cereals

Getting Connected

Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
