Harvest Event September 2015

Assisted by parents, carers and helpers, the children and adults alike had a great time with the playdough, making animals, fruit and vegetables.  On another table, pipe cleaners were transformed into animals and farm machinery.  One of the leaders gave a short chat about how God’s power changes seeds into large trees, illustrated with real fir cones and conkers.
