HARVEST THANKSGIVING & BACK-TO-CHURCH SUNDAY

Emmanuel’s Harvest Thanksgiving & Back-to-Church-Sunday followed by Brunch-on-the-Terrace – 5th October 2014

Harvest

It’s that time of year again when we celebrate Harvest Thanksgiving at Emmanuel and this year we are combining it with Back-to-Church-Sunday.

So, this is a reminder to all parishioners that following on from the Eucharist on Sunday 5th October we will share a Brunch-on-the-Terrace. Please make a contribution of food & drink to share after the 10:15am Service.  Do invite family and friends to join us!

Also, don’t forget to bring along some non-perishable food to present at the altar for blessing.  As in previous years, all items will be donated to Bethune House, a rescue centre for domestic helpers in HK.

‘New Sight’ – Republic of Congo – Restoring Sight, Changing Lives

A reminder that following the service there will be a retiring collection for New Sight, one of Emmanuel’s designated charities in 2014.  See you all next Sunday! 

The Emmanuel Rap

Emmanuel Church’s hilarious contribution to the St John’s 165th Anniversary Concert held in the Cathedral on Saturday 20th September 2014.  All credit to parishioner Sarah Gonnet for her fabulous lyrics and artistic direction.  The season of Advent will probably never be quite the same again at our little Pokfulam church 🙂  ENJOY!
