Our Harvest Festival Worship in St Peter's Church was a lovely opportunity for us to give thanks for our wonderful world and all of the lovely food that we have. We remembered today, as always, how important it is to be thankful for everything that we have. We also thought about and prayed for those that aren't as fortunate as we are.

As part of the service, each class explained about the charity that they had chosen to support and the reasons why the charity was so important to them.  The children experienced how rewarding it is to share what we have with others.

Class 1 chose to support the Ormskirk Food bank and collected food to give them.

Class 2 chose to support CRESS (Christian Relief and Education for South Sudanese

Class 3 chose to support The Red Cross 

Class 4 chose to support PCD - Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia which is a rare genetic condition that can lead to chronic lung, ear and sinus infections, along with other disorders in children and adults. This is very close to the hearts of all of our children and all members of our school community, as one of of pupils suffers from this rare condition.

The children all sang beautifully and spoke with great passion about the charities they had chosen to support.

The harvest celebration clearly touched the hearts of those who came to take part in the worship. Here are some of the comments from parents:

"I just wanted to say how fabulous the harvest service was today. It was clear that a lot of work had gone into it, but what was important was that it was an act of worship rather than a “performance”. I wanted to encourage you and the other staff. With blessings."

"I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you and all of the staff. The harvest festival this morning was absolutely lovely. There was alot of complements outside of church and it really did give the warm fuzzies! It obviously takes alot of effort getting children coordinated and back from church but it was very much appreciated. Thank you all very much!"
