On Wednesday we had a whole school assembly to celebrate Harvest. Mrs Bain told us why Harvest was important to Christians and how they celebrated it.
How do churches celebrate Harvest today?
Today, most U.K. churches have a Harvest Thanksgiving service. The church building may be decorated with a display of flowers and food, perhaps including a large loaf in the shape of a wheat sheaf. Often people bring more gifts of food to add to the display during the church service.Afterwards, the food will be sold to raise money for charity, or given directly to those in need. At harvest-time, the sharing of food helps Christians to remember that all good gifts come from God.
Lots of children donated food which was then given to people who were in need 🙂 Thank you to all the help and support from parents to help us celebrate this festival!
