On Friday 2nd October, 15 children from the local Islamic school will join us to celebrate our Harvest Assembly. This is the beginning of our links with this school. The children will bring along some produce for our Harvest table and afterwards will spend time in different classes to find out about St Mary’s. After the assembly a group of children from both schools will take the produce to St Paul’s Soup Kitchen. The produce will help the volunteers prepare hot meals for local homeless/vulnerable people and is a small expression of our attempt to bring the goodness of the harvest to everyone.
