Harvest Thanksgiving

Our service this morning was all about the bounty of God and all that He has provided for us. Andrew’s sermon entitled  food for the table makes a very interesting read.

After the service the congregation stayed for a soup and share lunch, and all of the produce was sold and the money raised, which amounted to a little over £100, will go to the Malawi fund.

Canonbie Church has decided to take part in the Malawi Kitchen Rice Challenge – we have purchased 90kg of Malawian rice, which can be purchased from the Church at £2.99 per bag. If a farmer in Malawi can sell 90kg of rice at a fair price, then he would have sufficient income to send one of his children to High School.

So join us in taking this challenge. For more information on this and other fairly traded products that are available, have a look at this website.
