Glenside Care Home gave us a very warm welcome when we brought keyboard, hymn sheets and some Autumn colour into Limetree ward in celebration of the harvest season.
We reflected on the parable of the wheat and weeds and also on a few of the things that define Autumn - misty mornings, ploughed fields and the riotous reds, russet and golden colours of the leaves echoed in the fruits of the season.
About a dozen residents and their carers joined us, singing along to the well-known hymns. And afterwards, we tucked into Kay’s wonderful array of cakes, baked that very morning - such a treat!
We look forward to returning there for our Christmas service on Tuesday 18 December at 10:30. Do join us if you are able to!
