Harvest Supper in the Church.
The Saturday evening following the Village Harvest Thanksgiving a good number of people made their way to Magdalen Church to continue the Harvest celebration with a two course hot meal starting with meat and vegetables and finishing with apple crumble and cream and tea or coffee.
On the tables was a paper with questions for a table quiz which everyone enjoyed taking part in as they arrived and sat down. There were questions about items and history of the Church and the Village. Such as ‘what arrived in Magdalen Church in 2018 and stayed’ answer – the cushions on the pews which make it more comfortable. What happened in Magdalen Village in 1913 – answer -Water arrived and the wooden bridge was replaced by the iron bridge.
Before we ate Peter Gagen led us with the Grace and then we sang ‘We plough the fields and scatter’.
After the meal we had a game when items were asked for such as a shoelace, a comb, something that glows in the dark which is not a phone or a tablet device. Each table was a team.
We all enjoyed ourselves and had good fellowship with each other and many laughs.
The evening finished with us singing ‘ Come Ye thankful people come’ and a Blessing.

MyPad report by Eleanor Chilvers
This month of September we were going to think about love and loving your neighbour.
We started the evening by answering quiz questions using a Bible passage and then solving a puzzle which spelt out a sentence.
We then talked about how we would rate from 1-10 how affected we would be by certain things happening to other people. For instance, one of the problems was when someone got their kite stuck up a tree, which we did not rate as affecting us very much and another was when someone had forgotten their lunch money for school and had nothing to eat, which we rated much higher.
Next we had the Good Samaritan story read out to us:.
We were then asked as a group to ‘bring the story up to date’ and enact it again thinking about someone we would not like and would ignore, just like the people did when they know the person in trouble was a hated Samaritan. We chose a girl who did not like a boy, because we could not really think of anyone we particularly hated. Now that I have had time to think we could have chosen a criminal who had hurt people for an example.
Lastly we had hot chocolate or a refreshing drink and lots of biscuits, before ending the evening with the Lord’s Prayer.
