This Sunday we come together for a Benefice Harvest Festival Service at St Mary Portbury at 10.30 am followed by a picnic harvest lunch. Either bring and share, or bring your own picnic if you are anxious about cross infection.
The Benefice is suppporting the Harvest Appeal by the Community of the Sisters of the Church who distribute food to the hungry in the East of Bristol, so please bring donations of dried and tinned food to support those less well off than ourselves, which will be blessed during the service.
If you are unable to join us, Rev Astrid has recorded a sermon for us which can be accessed by clicking on the link below. The link becomes live Sunday morning
Readings are James chapter 5 verses 13 - end The Power of Prayer
Mark Chapter 9, verses 38 - 50 Anyone not against us is for us

Enjoy the harvest. And enjoy the growth within you of the fruit of the Spirit as mentioned in Galatians 5. So that your faith may preserve you and yield a harvest of peace to the glory of God. Amen.
