Hello Everyone

Another week has passed.. and don't they fly quickly by!

It is the season of Harvest.. and last week Tingrith and Westoning Churches celebrated their Harvest Festivals and this week Harlington, Toddington and Chalgrave churches will celebrate theirs. We send a big thank you to all who have helped to decorate the churches, and to those who have made donations of harvest produce to give thanks to God our creator. The produce received will be forwarded to the foodbank or to other projects to help those who need support. We look forward to Toddington and Chalgrave harvest supper this evening, and also offer our thanks to Nicholas and the Quintet Choir for providing such wonderful music and song yesterday at Harlington Harvest Hurrah.

This week has been a busy week for new launches and re-starting groups. Toddington launched its Mum's and Tot's group (which will meet fortnightly at Wilkinson Hall on Mondays from 9-10.30am from this coming Monday) and on Friday, we were also delighted to welcome back our Messy Church families. (We will meet on the first Friday of each month). Friday lunches also met for the first time for many months.... The smiles and happiness were tangible. It is so good to gather again.

At Harlington, the first Family Breakfast (Messy Church style gathering) meets for breakfast, craft and songs, at 9am in the Parish Rooms, led by Rebecca.

Westoning TWIG (Messy Church style group) re-started this week too, and there was much happiness again as folks had time to get together again. Friday Fellowship and the Sewing Bees group also meet weekly.

We look forward to further gatherings being announced in the future.
