Families joined together in St Iberius Church to share some gratitude at the annual Harvest Thanksgiving service.
The event saw huge crowds flock to the church to participate in the service, which focuses on children and young people. In keeping with this theme, the Loch Garman Youth Band comprising 25 young musicians and conducted by John Clancy, accompanied the main congregational singing throughout the service, while Vicky Barron provided piano accompaniment for the St. Iberius School choir.
The service was led by Canon Arthur Minion, who, in his opening address, thanked the Youth Band, for including the Harvest Service in its annual schedule. He added that the Band had become an invaluable friend of the St Iberius community.
Following the service the Band sent everyone home on a high note, literally, by performing Jeremiah Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary.
