Harvest – Bread of Life.
Rev Rachael officiated at Llangunllo Community Harvest Festival at St Cynllo’s Church on the last Sunday in October.
The church was beautifully decorated, and in the porch to welcome all, were Mr and Mrs Scarecrow.
George Baker was organist and the traditional harvest hymns were sung. The readings included a lovely poem on Autumn and, central to the service, the Gospel of St John, “Jesus the bread of life.”
The congregation, especially the children with baker’s hats and aprons, took part in “Patacake, patacake baker’s man, bake me a loaf as quick as you can” and reflecting on how important bread is to us all, a variety of loaves were presented.
The service ended with prayers and the Blessing.
Those present then enjoyed refreshments, including mulled cider, and social time together.
