This morning we had our annual Harvest Festival service. We used to walk to St Mary's, a beautiful stone church but this was destroyed by the quakes so now Reverend John comes to us.
We bring food donations which are given to the Christchurch City Mission to feed those who are suffering in our city. Michael Gorman from the City Mission collects our gifts as we reflect on how lucky we are and pray for people who aren't as lucky as us.
Ella read beautifully and Leilah, Lucinda, Isabella and Connie prayed for people who are struggling.
The Senior Chamber Choir performed for the first time this year and they were stunning. Michael Gorman commented that the music "fed his soul."
Here is the Senior Chamber Choir singing, "All Good Gifts."
