Alet les Bains

Harvest Festival Service

Broadcast on 4 October 2020

Good morning

On Thursday 24th September, the congregation of Alet les Bains gathered again in the grounds of Les Marguerites Restaurant in Alet les Bains to offer thanks for the Harvest.

This was a service including an Agape Love Feast, so you are invited to share in this and to have your own bread and wine to hand so that you can participate when we reach the moment of sharing bread and wine.

All the liturgy and the words of the readings are displayed on-screen during the service.

Our offerings this year were on the theme: "All Things Bright and Scented", and gathered toiletries, soap, shampoo and toothpaste to present to Secours Catholique in Qullian to help the families that they support.

Our preacher is Linda Billenness.

BACKGROUND NOISE WARNING. Now, Alet les Bains is known as a quiet little village, set back from the main road, which bypasses it. However, as soon as we started our service, convoys of tractors and vans started passing by our worship venue, their engines roaring energetically as they struggled up the hill outside ! We therefore apologise for some background traffic noise, as well as the neighbour who always seems to be preoccupied with operating his power drill as soon as our worship starts, and then ceases again once the service is finished.

Lower down on this page, we have placed some Harvest Thanksgiving material for the young and the young at heart. We are again delighted to welcome Margaret Houston from the Diocese of St Albans with her Reflection on Harvest. We have also added 2 harvest hymns which you may not recognise but you might like to boogie along to.

We hope you will enjoy all these items.
