HARVEST FESTIVAL 2019
On 29th September we will celebrate the wonder of the earth's annual harvest and thank God for all his blessings. We anticipate that the church will be filled with flowers, fruits and vegetables of many colours.
The Scouting groups which meet at our church each week will contribute to the service and with other members of the congregation will display their gifts, which will then be passed CIRDIC, the drop-in centre on Berkely Avenue.
It will be wonderful to see the church full of young people and adults celebrating the world's harvest, as we do each year.
2nd Tilehurst Brownies celebrate milestones
On Wednesday 18th September Brown Owl (Valerie Roberts) held a celebration of the 2nd Tilehurst Brownies' life at our church. Records show that 2nd Tilehurst Brownies was registered 75 years ago in September 1944. However, evidence has since been uncovered that they were in operation in the 1930s.
The evening was very interesting and fun as we learned all about Brownies and life during WW2. The Brownies even had to dash for shelter under tables at the sound of the air raid siren.
The evening was a double celebration as Valerie celebrated 25 years as Brown Owl. We give thanks for such a dedicated person who not only cares for and educates the children but helps us by rolling up her sleeves to help when we have a Church working party. We ended the evening with a lovely slice of Val's celebration cake.
