Sunday 25th September Harvest Festival Services.

We are decorating the church on Saturday 24th from around 9.30 until 12 noon. You may bring harvest gifts at this time, on Friday during Coffee Shop times, or on Sunday. Many of our church organisations have been asked to decorate a window.


This year we shall be sharing the gifts between the Romford Salvation Army which has a special appeal for items to give to needy people in the Romford locality and the Whitechapel Mission which provides care for the poor and homeless in East London. Whitechapel Mission is the only place where homeless people can obtain a cooked breakfast in the City and East End. It operates 52 weeks a year, seven days a week, and is open on Bank Holidays and Christmas.


So, traditional offerings of fruit and vegetables are welcome but also tinned and packet goods and toiletries.
