Refugees and asylum seekers throughout the Tees Valley area will benefit from this year’s Harvest Festival service at St Edmund’s Church in Sedgefield.
Anyone planning to attend the service at 10am on Sunday, October 14th, is asked to bring non-perishable food items which will be donated to Justice First, a small voluntary agency based in Stockton.
The celebration of harvest will be led by Lay Reader Michael King who said this week: “The service will have two focal points – celebrating what those of us in this part of the world have and thinking about those less fortunate than ourselves, especially asylum seekers and refugees in this country and around the world”.
Harvest Festival is always a popular service and is open to everyone in the community.
Further information is available from Michael on 01740 620910.
