Harvest Celebration

Open House, Open Doors, Open Mind
To mark London Open House weekend, our Harvest Festival will consider ways that we can open our doors to those in need. As we gear up for the opening of this year’s Cold Weather Shelter, we will look at its work with homeless refugees.

Please Note: We’re asking everyone to bring non-perishable goods to Chapel today – these will be donated to a charity as part of our annual Harvest Celebration!

Sunday 18th September (7.00pm)

Autumn Equinox Celebration

Led by members of our ‘Wheel of the Year’ group, and drawing from the Celtic earth/pagan tradition, we will celebrate the autumn equinox. The service is participatory and one of the eight great Celtic celebrations during the ‘wheel of the year’.

Flowers

The wonderful Harvest Festival decorations have been provided through the generosity of Chapel members and the produce will be donated to the Simon Community. Thanks to all the helpers and special thanks to Helene Howard for the beautiful chancel display of autumn-themed silk flowers.

If you have a special person or an event to celebrate or remember, please consider sponsoring a larger display by contacting Sharron: admin@rosslynhillchapel.com

Please note! Our Sunday collection basket will be divided with the Chapel’s ‘Cold Weather Shelter’
