Harvest time in Bermondsey
St James's School came to church this morning for their harvest service and greatly added to the pile of gifts we are building up for the Manna Centre's work alongside the homeless.
The centre at London Bridge welcomes 120-150 people each day. They are open 7 days a week and serve around 800 meals each week, and in the space of a year they help 300 people find accommodation.
They estimate that Harvest gifts from the local churches provide about 70 per cent of their foodstuffs
It is good to know that the harvest gifts from church and school are going to such a good cause - as will St Anne's harvest goods after the harvest service there on Sunday.
