The Circuit has had a busy few weeks celebrating and reflecting on Harvest Festival.
Over 30 pupils from Stokesley Primary school visited the Stokesley church for a short service and told us what they were thankful for using their handprints. They also made generous donations to the Food Bank and we finished with our favourite song, the Harvest Samba

Monday evening saw Stokesley host over 85 people for the Harvest supper, which was followed by an auction of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Hutton Rudby's Harvest service focussed on thanksgiving, but also reflected on our responsibility for taking care of God's planet and gifts. It was followed by an ecumenical harvest lunch at Church House organised by our friends at the Anglican church. The following Sunday the theme of thankfulness was continued at the Sunday Breakfast with the story of the 10 lepers, and an impromptu sketch from some of the youngsters reminding us to give thanks to God and others for the things we've receive.

Great Ayton also hosted a sucessful Harvest lunch for members and those from the community and a Harvest Ceilidh. Not only was the lunch a great social occasion but it also raised £145 for the Smiles Foundation.

Seamer church also saw large numbers of the community join them for their Harvest service. Many of those attending were the farmers and their families that we are so thankful for.
