The Anglican Church Luxembourg is celebrating Creationtide, a chance to take stock of the wonderful world we live in; to mark the occasion, in addition to the weekly family service, Church members are organising two fun events on Sunday 23 September 2018 — a potluck harvest lunch and a family treasure hunt.
At 11:00, the Anglican Church will host a Harvest Festival service at the Convict Centre chapel (5 Avenue Marie-Thérèse, Luxembourg-ville), during which the congregation can donate foodstuffs to the Fondation Maison de la Porte Ouverte (FMPO).
Afterwards, there will be a bring-and-share harvest lunch in the hall downstairs, to fuel people up for the Harvest Treasure Hunt which starts at 14:30 (registration from 13:00 in the Salle Maria Rheinsheim), which helps raise funds for the charities supported by the church. It is aimed at teams of 2-5 adults/children (no cars involved). Using a map provided by volunteers, participants have to track down images of natural treasures which will be planted around the city centre parks. Each picture will continue a quiz question and a fun fact.
The questions will be accessible in English, French and German. Medals will be awarded according to speed of finding the treasures and the most accurate quiz answers.
Drinks and cake available all afternoon.
Entry fee: adults €10, children €5, U8s free, maximum €30 per family. For further information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
