Our Messy Church service was all about the harvest. John told us of the first Harvest Festival Service in Morwenstow, Cornwall where the vicar, Robert Stephen Hawker, held it in 1834. Thanking God for the harvest had been done for centuries and still happens throughout the world. The children celebrated by each making a tree with tissue paper leaves in all the colours of Autumn. Afterwards we sang and prayed and our refreshments included chocolate biscuits, which always go down well.
