Please join us in St Thomas' on Wednesday night, for hot soup (or chocolate), prayers and candlelight, 7-8pm.
If you can't come long, please join us in this prayer, as we celebrate the end of harvest and the onset of winter, appreciative also of the loved ones who have gone before and the new lives yet to come:
We bless you, God of Seed and Harvest
And we bless each other

Might be expressed though our lives
And be a blessing to others
Now and always
A. AMEN
