October Parish News and Harvest

Harvest Festival is nearly upon us. We celebrate it this weekend, with a Hog Roast and Quiz on Saturday (Oct 4th) at 6pm at Seal School (Adults £10, Children
£5, Family ticket £25 - let me know by Thursday if you want to come and haven't already put your name on the list in church).
Our Harvest Festival service, which will include the baptism of Josie Monks, will take place at 10 am this Sunday (Oct 5th ). 
There will be a cash collection for Rochester Diocese's "Poverty and Hope" appeal. You can find out more about this here. 

You can find the Seal's October Parish News here, with details of our WW1 Remembrance project, "The Long Shadow". We are trying to collect as many family stories of WW1 and its impact so that we can display them on Remembrance Sunday (Nov 9) and then archive them. We don't just want stories of those who fought, but also those at home who were affected by war. You might have an ancestor who did war work, or was a conscientious objector, or was widowed or orphaned by war. Whatever the story, we'd like to hear it.

I hope you will join in - most families have a story to tell, even if it is very vague, or just a name.
