On Sunday 30th September it was the turn of St. Pius X Church to host a 'Together in Christ' celebration. Together in Christ is an ecumenical association of the Christian churches in Merrow.
This celebration was entitled "Harvest Songs of Praise" and was devised by Frances Allen and Angela Sharpe, and led by Deacon Michael Phillips, who also gave a homily. The scene in the church had been set perfectly by fabulous displays of harvest produce on the Sanctuary - these were created by the floral team under the leadership of Jan Morris.
The celebration was greatly enhanced by a combined choir directed by Gillian Brierley, and accompanied on the organ by Anne Hoye.
A collection was taken for the local 'Seeds for Development' charity, which promotes education, empowerment and farming projects in Uganda.
Refreshments were served in the hall at the end. Frances Allen commented:
