HARVEST FESTIVAL SERVICE , 11am at St.Etheldreda Church – Sunday October 5th – A traditional Harvest Festival service with the bells rung afterwards.

In Britain, thanks have been given since pagan times for successful harvests and to mark the end of the main season.  Harvest festivals are traditionally held on the Sunday closest to the Harvest Moon or Autumn Equinox.

In Horley, this year we are celebrating twice over this upcoming weekend and raising money for others less fortunate than us.
