As summer draws to a close, there are beautiful colours to be found everywhere, especially in the leaves that fall from the trees. This is the season of Harvest Festivals, with churches celebrating and giving thanks for all that God’s creation provides for our food and wellbeing. As we enjoy the best bits of autumn, we can be thankful along the way, wherever we are.
Autumn can be an incredibly beautiful time of year, and a time when farmers can finally collect in the crops after a hard-working year of sowing and growing. There’s so much to be thankful for, and this is what Harvest Festivals in churches are all about.
