Harvest Festival Weekend at St Mary’s Church
St Mary’s Church, Ross-on-Wye, will be holding a Harvest Festival Weekend with a difference on 10th and 11th October.
On Saturday 10th October the church will be open from 10am-5pm with prayers hourly and displays representing groups from around the community. Say a prayer, light a candle, or spend some time thanking God during this harvest season.
At 7pm there will be a Virtual Harvest Supper. This is an opportunity to prepare a meal at home that reminds you of harvest and then join them on Zoom to eat and drink together as they give thanks for good health and prosperity.

On Sunday 11th October at 9:30am will be the St. Mary’s Harvest Eucharist. This is a harvest service packed with favourite harvest hymns. Join in church or watch online at http://rossparishes.uk/digital-services
At 6pm the Choral Evensong will take place. This will be the first service the choir has sung live since March. Join them for this conclusion to the harvest celebration.
A special request to all traders and shopkeepers
Harvest nowadays is not just about flowers, fruit and vegetables though there will be plenty of those in church. St Mary’s want to celebrate all the fruits of the labour in the workplace: manufacturing, retailing, insuring, advising, training and volunteering. They are asking for help to display this by lending them something to put on show; or take a photograph of your establishment so that visitors can see that Ross-on-Wye is very much surviving, is “open for business” and is thankful.
