Both our churches will be celebrating Harvest on Sunday 6 October with welcoming, family services.
Here is the poster for All Saints’.
This year we plan to support two different initiatives with our gifts.
The first is the Walton and District Community Foodbank.
This is a voluntary organisation originally set up by Walton Churches Together and now run by many different members of the community.
The primary mission of the Foodbank is to give Emergency Food Aid to those in financial distress. It covers the area of Frinton, Great Holland, Kirby Cross, Kirby le Soken and Walton and the Naze. Those who approach one of the partner organisations can collect a FoodBank Voucher and then exchange it for a Food Parcel.
The FoodBank looks for support from people to help and also the provision of non-perishable food to go into the parcels.
The second organisation is Tools With A Mission. Tools with a Mission enables people to earn a living and to support themselves. See www.TWAM.co.uk
In many countries of the world people have few skills, little education and no means of earning a living. A switch from aid dependency to self sufficiency is impossible without help.
TWAM started twenty seven years ago, and has since then provided this help by collecting and refurbishing tools and equipment no longer required in the UK and sending them overseas.
So, we’re collecting hand tools in whatever condition.
