Harvest is a time of reflection, gratitude, and above all, generosity. This time, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to Saint Patrick’s and St John’s Church of Ireland for their exceptional generosity in donating to Whitehead Storehouse. Their act of kindness has not only enriched our community but also filled our hearts with gratitude.These two churches belong to the same parish and held two joint services at which parishioners donated. The first set of pictures are from the Thanksgiving Service held in St Patrick’s Church and the second set of pictures from the Thanksgiving Service held in St John’s Chruch.
We are all Interconnected

The harvest season serves as a poignant reminder of the interconnectedness of life and the importance of sharing our blessings with those in need. It is a time when communities come together to give thanks for the abundance of the land and to ensure that no one in their midst goes without.
The heart of the Church of Ireland’s donation was centred on providing much-needed nourishment for those facing food insecurity in our community. Shelves in the Storehouse now have essential items, ready to offer sustenance to families experiencing difficult times. The act of providing food extends far beyond nourishing bodies; it also nourishes the spirit.

As we celebrate this year’s harvest season, let us carry the spirit of giving with us throughout the year. Supporting local food banks and charities is not limited to a season; it’s a year-round commitment to ensuring that everyone in our community has access to the essentials they need.
