Yesterday we held our Harvest Celebration and as part of that food donated for The Welcome Centre in Huddersfield – and this morning they were delighted to receive our donations, alongside those from other local churches, all of us reaching out to local people in need
See more about their good work at http://thewelcomecentre.org/
Across the diocese several churches have also celebrated Harvest by contributing in various ways to other food bank in their own communities. See http://www.wakefield.anglican.org/news/story/harvest_in_our_churches
The need is increasing, with numbers of requests increasing here in Huddersfield and across the country.
We pray for those receiving these donations, and that the goods and the kindness with which they are distributed may bring hope and life in difficult times.
The Lord bless us all, givers and receivers.
