Sunday, 4th October showed nearly a full house for the annual Harvest Festival. All praise to the ‘flower ladies’ who transformed the church as the pictures show. The service was slightly different in that the three chapters from Ruth, instead of being read out were ‘performed’ by three PCC members with the Rector as narrator. It seemed to work well; different anyway!! Prayers were read by Martin Dingemans (our resident farmer!) and his two daughters Holly and Maisie.


The very generous collection was shared between the church and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution. All the donated produce, of which there was loads, were taken to a very pleased Leonard Cheshire Home for the Disabled in Hitchin….certainly the chef looked happy!


Naturally, being Rushden, the service was followed by a BBQ in the village hall…AND the weather was kind!

Next major Rushden Church event is the Carol Service on Sunday 13thDecember at 6.00 pm. CW
