CALLOW End Primary School held their Harvest Service in St James’ Church, Callow End beginning with the hymn Autumn Days and ending with Water of Life. The children sang a variety of harvest songs, Class Three recited a harvest poem and Class Four told the story of The Little Red Hen. The gifts of food brought to the service were donated to St Paul’s Hostel, Malvern and Malvern Hills Foyer, along with those donated at the Sunday service.

On Sunday, Harvest was celebrated in St James’ by Reverend Chris Copeland when members of Junior Church illustrated the connection between God’s world and the bread eaten at tea time. Nicola Sandy was the narrator with Richard Birch as the farmer, Sam Lippett as the miller and Hayley Brassington as the baker. Little Alice Lippett served tea from her colourful tea-set! Joe Lippett successfully operated the computer for the order of service and Peter Wilson played the organ. Junior Church meets at 9.30am on Sundays during term time.
