Sunday 14th October 10.45am – Harvest Festival Service.
Not everyone can get away to the seaside – so the seaside is coming to Greenfield.
On Sunday 19th August the church will be laid out with sun loungers and umbrellas. As part of the service we will create a holiday atmosphere with hymns round the bandstand, Punch & Judy, virtual donkey rides and a trip round the lighthouse.
Everyone will receive a free icecream and be encouraged to come to church in their holiday gear – but there’s no need to go to extremes!
Ralph will be leading the service.
