This half term we will be celebrating Harvest.

Cafe Church, Open Table Service -- Harvest: celebrating abundance ⋆ Worship  Words

What happens at Harvest time at Higham St. John's?

Harvest is when we bring donations of tinned and packaged food into school.  We take these to church and have a Harvest thanksgiving service where we say 'thank you' to God for all He has given us.

The Harvest gifts are then collected and distributed to a charity, such as a local food bank, where they will be given to people in need.

Look out for more details about our Harvest appeal 2023 on our newsletters!
