Harvest & Big Bake

In amidst the warm Saturday sunshine was the crunching and smell of autumn leaves. There is something beautiful about Edinburgh as the seasons change, in the dying back of the leaves and trees moving into a state of dormancy, we get such beauty of vivid colours and delicious fruit to eat. Come celebrate God’s creation with us on Sunday 6th October starting at 10:30am and ponder a bit about Tearfund’s theme ‘Less is More.’ At our all-age service this day we will be taking a dry goods collection for the Northeast Edinburgh foodbank, our annual offering for Tearfund, and our annual big bake will occur with the theme ‘5 ingredients or less’ just after the service alongside brunch! Do bring containers if you wish to take baking away. Please see the fliers below for full details. HarvestAdvert
