Going Viral XLVIII: Harvest home

St Peter’s tower with his keys.

Another slice of parish life in Covid times.

Good morning to you all, on a very wet day! But we do need the rain. Thank you for the Rain. Last night we had a zoom ‘Watch Party’ for the film Thank you for the Rain. Christian Aid made the film, and have allowed us to download it, from the diocese:

Please use the link below to download the film. Please note this does take a long time depending on your download speed. Please copy and paste into your browser.https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nwBerCZYnHgVVgAfSCc3wS87mDs0dM7f
It is a very moving film, and if you can please do watch it. It tells first hand the impact of Climate Change on farmers in Africa, it follows Kisilu who over 5 years goes from a small scale farmer to climate activist.
With Harvest at St Peter’s and St Mildred’s this Sunday (you don’t need to book), along with the Sunday 4th being the Feast of St Francis of Assisi, who is the patron saint of animals and the environment, we will certainly have an environmental focus on Sunday.

Sunday 4th October also sees the worldwide launch of Sir David Attenburgh’s film on Netflix: A Life on our Planet, which has an excellent write up:  https://www.radiotimes.com/news/film/2020-09-25/david-attenborough-a-life-on-our-planet-review-netflix/
So if it is a wet and windy weekend – maybe an opportunity to sit with a cuppa and watch a film or two, along with joining us on-line for our worship, or in person. 

  • Details for Sunday worship: No Need to book (we will advise when you will need to book)
  • 8.00 Said Eucharist at St Dunstan’s 9.30  Harvest & Said Eucharist at St Peter’s – without pews there is always plenty of space at St Peter’s. This service will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube

  • Psalm 66:4 “All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.”  

God Bless, and do please keep well, keep connected and keep praying
Jo
