Harvest Festival

St Andrew's Church was packed on Sunday for the Harvest Festival service, led by Andrew Waters. During the worship, children and other members of the congregation brought donations of fresh produce, tinned food and supplies to the front of the church.

This year, the donations will be going to Beacon House & the Colchester Food Bank. Beacon House is a Christian Charity that offers healthcare facilities to those who are homeless, in insecure accommodation, or at high risk of homelessness.

The Harvest Loaf, being held above by members of Soul Bar at St Andrew's, was baked and donated by Julie Briggs. A Harvest Supper was held on Saturday at the church, with proceeds going to Tearfund.
