Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

Yes, it's our harvest weekend in Dundonald, but it's not a traditional harvest weekend by any means! Tonight we're having our harvest supper. Stop for a moment - what images do those two words bring to mind? You're probably thinking of a salad tea, or plates piled with sandwiches, followed by traybakes, buns and sweet things. Well, not tonight. Instead, we're having a 'Golden Chip Harvest Supper' supplied by one of the local chip shops. Over 100 portions of chips, and a selection of sausages, chicken strips and pasties will be served as quickly as we can have them delivered and distributed! Thankfully, though, we don't need to worry about the calories, because our evening continues with a Barn Dance (yeeha!)

Tomorrow we're having a special day of Bible teaching, with Bishop Wallace Benn, the Bishop of Lewes in England teaching on Steps to Local Church Growth from the book of Acts. The sessions begin at 10.30 in the Burton Hall tomorrow morning, with some family activities in the afternoon, with a final session at 5pm.

Sunday is our actual Harvest Thanksgiving services, at 10.30am and 6.30pm, again with Bishop Wallace preaching. You're very welcome to join with us to celebrate God's goodness to us, and to praise King Jesus.
