Hi The question above please and also , I know that we don't have a harvest festival but I quite like it and think its a great thing to do and I enjoyed the festivel when I went ( went to an a high church Anglican church school before I became a Christian)
For those who may not know what one is :
Harvest Festival is a celebration of the food grown on the land.
Thanksgiving ceremonies and celebrations for a successful harvest are both worldwide and very ancient. In Britain, we have given thanks for successful harvests since pagan times. We celebrate this day by singing, praying and decorating our churches with baskets of fruit and food in a festival known as 'Harvest Festival', usually during the month of September/October
Harvest Festival reminds Christians of all the good things God gives them. This makes them want to share with others who are not so fortunate. In schools and in Churches, people bring food from home to a Harvest Festival Service. After the service, the food that has been put on display is usually made into parcels and given to people in need.
Isn't there any way I could suggest to my preist if we can do a do make sort of thing or just attend the Anglo catholic church for it ? I know it's a a bit way off but it is soon
