Harvest 2016

If you are wanting to give 'physically' as it were this Harvest (Sunday 2nd at St Thomas' and Sunday 9th at St Peter's), *please* can you have a look at the lists below.

These sorts of donations will make a huge difference to the lives of refugees - not just in Calais - but in Turkey, Greece and elsewhere.

Financial gifts will go to support the Bishop of St Albans Harvest Appeal which is supporting the work of Water Aid in Madagascar. More details can be found in the video below and at www.harvestappeal.org

Thank you in advance for your generosity

Seeking Salvation - 20 September - 8pm

'Cross Reference' © Sheila de Rosa but used with kind permission

For many artists, their work is an outlet for their own search for meaning. It is a way of expressing the natural questions that arise from simply being alive. In that sense all art is a spiritual search and asks both artist and viewer similar questions to those of Spirituality and Theology such as: Why am I here? Does my life have any purpose? Why is there suffering?
 
Through a brief look at how some great artists approached this search and a chance to look at Hertfordshire based artist Sheila de Rosa’s own work, we will have a chance to discuss some of these big questions together.

St Peter the Apostle, Mill End

8pm

This event is free and is part of our GROW week and all are welcome to join us.

Refreshments will be available and there will be an opportunity to purchase some of Sheila's work too.
