Harvest Banners

These banners were designed and made by a group of young people, mainly from secondary school, with support and encouragement from several adults. The group met twice a week during the summer holidays.

The theme "Seedtime and Harvest" was chosen along with suitable, relevant biblical texts.

Each morning session began with a quiet time when the thoughts of the group were focused towards a particular text. The banners were discussed and their final design was often only finalised when our thoughts and ideas were well established.
