This Ecumenical service has been going since the nineties and is always placed close to UN Day. It is very special as besides the German Church and ours, the following congregations are involved: The Danish Seaman’s Church, the Finnish, Estonian, Lithuanian and Icelandic congregations, and the church in “Norges Hus”. All languages are represented in the readings, prayers and music, and each group is expected to contribute typical national savouries or cakes for the refreshments afterwards!

There is no service at St. Andrews on this day (23rd October).

The Harvest celebration was a very festive occasion. During the service children brought offerings to the altar accompanied by singing. After the service an auction of all the gifts was held expertly held by Heather, making it a profitable as well as an enjoyable experience. This was followed by a simple but very enjoyable ploughman’s lunch. The sun had come out so it was possible to have it in the garden.
