Harvest Festival

St Peter's Harvest Festival service took place on 2nd October, and regular worshippers were joined by children from Shaftesbury Primary School with their parents. Singing was led by the worship band, and in addition we were treated to dancing to the music "Harvest Samba", by four pupils, and led in the singing of "Autumn Days" by the school choir. Holly and Sophie, two of our regular 9 year old worshippers and members of the worship band, shared the 2nd reading. The Rector was assisted in her talk by a number of children. During the service we also welcomed seven-month old Austin Snell after his recent baptism at the church. Our harvest gifts were sent to the Gillingham Food bank.
