Harvest has been a time to remember that we are completely reliant on the goodness of our Heavenly Father, who provides all that is needed to sustain life – year upon year, generation upon generation. It can be easy to forget this living in a city.
Psalm 65, in The Bible, celebrates this truth so well:

‘You visit the earth and water it,
You greatly enrich it;
The river of God is full of water;
You provide their grain
For so You have prepared it.
You water its ridges abundantly;
You settle its furrows:
You make it soft with showers,
You bless its growth.
You crown the year with Your goodness… ‘

Here at The Well, Harvest 2014 will be remembered for the astonishing generosity shown by schools, churches and businesses.

We have received 52 Harvest Collections (some combined by a school & church), weighing a whopping 7246 Kg!! Wolverhampton has again demonstrated its reputation for being a generous city.

The fresh foods have been a much appreciated addition, shown in a message we received from a food parcel recipient via one of the Housing Support Teams:

“I got so emotional because they sent me a wide variety of stuff they even threw in potatoes and fruits I just couldn’t believe they sent me so much. God will forever bless them and thank you so much”.

During this season, we have also been privileged to join local Harvest Festival Celebrations. Our thanks and appreciation go to the school and church communities and children at:

St. Michael’s Primary School, Tettenhall
St. Paul’s Primary School, Pendeford
St. Jude’s Church, Tettenhall
Tettenhall Wood School
Woden Primary School, Heath Town
