For our Harvest Festivals on 26th September this year, both our churches will be supporting 2 charities:
Hart Foodbank has been at the forefront of our ministry for years, supporting local people who have reached crisis point with food, cleaning materials, and encouragement.
Food.gives is an international foodbank project from the Barnabas Fund, a charity which supports persecuted Christians around the world. Because they are sending food overseas, they have a very specific list of food items which are the only items which the Barnabas Fund are able to accept.
The Barnabas Fund is sending us 30 food boxes which we will then hopefully fill and send back to them and I am hoping between the churches and schools we can fill these, and perhaps a few more as well. The cost of getting a food box into the hands of a recipient is approximately £4, so alongside our physical gifts, we would love to provide financially to this project to help with the logistical costs as well as for Hart Foodbank. Therefore we will be having a collection at each Harvest Festival Service and at our Harvest Afternoon Tea at St Barnabas.
