St. Andrew’s, Kyrenia, celebrate Harvest Thanksgiving on Sunday 17th September

A date for your diary: Sunday 17th September 2017

 

For millennia humankind has thought to give thanks for the bounty of the earth (and the work of human hands) which sustains each and every one of us in our daily lives.

Following the ancient Jewish tradition, from which Christianity, as one of the three great “Religions of the Book” (the other two being Judaism and Islam) takes its root, many Anglican (and other) parishes celebrate Harvest Thanksgiving around this time of the year (in the northern hemisphere at least!).

St. Andrew’s, Kyrenia, is no exception and this year we will celebrate our Harvest Thanksgiving on Sunday 17th September at the 10.30 a.m. Holy Communion service.

We hope to be joined by Bishop Michael on that day and look forward to having him join with us in worship and thanks for the Harvest.

Please do come and join us for the service, and also for the Bring and Share lunch afterwards in the grounds of The Hermitage, the home of our Chaplain.

Don’t worry if you have nothing to bring or share: most churches follow the example set at Our Lord’s “Feeding of the Five Thousand” with twelve baskets left after all have had their fill!
