On Wednesday October 10th Kexborough welcomed 160 children and their teachers from Kexborough Primary school into our church.
The school had been in touch and asked if they could for the second year running hold their harvest service in the church.
The church was packed not a spare seat anywhere as the children sang, read poems and shared their prayers.
Words such as 'cauliflowers fluffy and cabbages green' and 'conkers, we're collecting conkers' rang out through the church and brought smiles to everyone's faces.
After a few words from our minister Bruce, the children were served with refreshments before returning up to school to continue their lessons.
After chatting to the teachers we are hoping that Bruce can visit the school occasionally and lead a few assemblies for the children.
The school also have a choir or 'Glee Club' as they call it. And they have offered to come and sing and be part of our Christmas Tree Festival and Fair to be held on Saturday December 1st 10 — 12 noon.
Santa is also paying us a visit once again this year on that morning, so if you're free why not come along to join us — we would love to see you all.
