Harvest Service in Lullington

Harvest will be celebrated twice in the parish of Lullington with Orchardleigh this year.

At 11am on Sunday 5th October there will be a Harvest Festival service of Holy Communion at All Saints, Lullington.

On Sunday 12th October, again at 11am, there will be a Harvest Festival service of Matins at St Mary the Virgin, Orchardleigh, the first time harvest has been celebrated here for a number of years, at possibly one of the most rural churches in the diocese of Bath & Wells being between two fields of cows or sheep and a lake!

The church dates to the 14th Century and sits on a moated island adjacent to the lake on the Orchardleigh estate and due to it’s location has no electricity. All services are illuminated by candlelight and the organ is pumped by hand.
