Double harvest celebration

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

On Sunday 27th September at 11.00am there will be a Harvest Festival service of Holy Communion at St Mary the Virgin, Orchardleigh.

The organisers say, “Last year was the first time harvest had been celebrated here for a number of years, possibly one of the most rural churches in the diocese of Bath & Wells being between two fields of cows or sheep and a lake!

Then at 11.00am on Sunday 4 October there will be a Harvest Festival service of Holy Communion at All Saints, Lullington.

The Church of St Mary dates back to the 14th century and sits on a moated island adjacent to the lake on the Orchardleigh estate and due to its location, has no electricity and all services are illuminated by candlelight and the organ is pumped by hand!

The Church of All Saints in Lullington dates back to around 1160 and features a font and carving over the north door from that date.
