Harvest to be celebrated at Orchardleigh

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

On Sunday 24th September at 11.00am there will be a Harvest Festival service of Holy Communion at St Mary the Virgin, Orchardleigh. After a long gap, the harvest celebration returned to St Mary’s only a few years ago to possibly one of the most rural churches in the diocese of Bath & Wells, being between two fields of cows or sheep and a lake!

At 11.00am on Sunday 1st 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. 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.
