Experience Church with Lucie!

Experience HarvestSt. Stephen’s Church, Treleigh1st – 3rd October 2019 Galatians 5 : 22-23‘But the spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control. There is no law against such things as these.’ Following last term’s ‘experience  church’, the second ‘experience’ took place, this time the subject was harvest. The team reassembled, with a couple of welcome new additions, and the church was transformed. Five stations were set up representing Harvest of the garden, ocean, flock, grain and the earth. The children were introduced to these concepts by interacting at the various stations, learning about Patience; through the planting of seeds, Peace; through the story of Jesus calming the sea, Humility; by learning that a garment is woven through the skills of many, who cannot work alone, Generosity; by the sharing of bread and the Joy of giving, by making a pot to give away. The final experience was ‘thanksgiving’, where the children learned about the Jewish celebration of Sukkot. They hung fruits, bearing the words from each station in the Sukkah, which was assembled as the Jewish people do during Sukkot, to remember Moses leading his people through the desert to the promised land, which in turn reminds them of God’s faithfulness. All in all, it was a very positive time and I would like to thank all the volunteers who generously gave of their time and talents. The wonderful harvest loaf was handcrafted and donated by Ian ‘Denzil’ Trevethick from Fore Street Redruth. The veg was given by Liz and Geoffrey from St Euny Churchtown and a corn sheaf was sourced by Charmaine. Margaret Davis donated a sheet which became our troubled sea, and Anthony gave the apples. A big thanks to all who donated. The harvest loaf and veg were used to form the display at the altar for the Harvest Festival service at St…
