At our harvest festival we used potatoes to help us think more about being a Christian. We talked about how potatoes grow and compared it to being a Christian. Potatoes grow underground, we only see the leaves at the top and don't know until we dig them up, how good the harvest is. Similarly people cannot see how well we are growing in faith, they only see our outward appearance. God, however, knows us inside out. We printed with potatoes to 'make our mark' as members of God's family. Then we gift wrapped our potatoes to reflect a kind and generous nature that comes with being a Christian. And finally we asked each other for prayer requests and noted those alongside our prints.

Many gifts were donated for the local foodbank and fresh produce was sold in aid of famine relief.
