It is harvest season, a busy time for the rural church. In the village of Breinton, the ladies of the church are creating a spectacular display for the harvest festival. On the surface it is a picture of a healthy village church, but to new deacon Matthew Cashmore it is clear that they need to attract newcomers to the village. He is determined to bring something of Breinton's harvest to help the homeless and needy much further afield, but they are people who many are wary of. In the Black Mountains, Vicar Nicholas is sowing rather than reaping, hoping that the young couple getting married in his church - and their congregation - will be touched by the experience. Back in Breinton, Matthew's colleague Ruth believes that if people are not coming to church, the church needs to go to them. The village Bonfire Night proves to be the ideal occasion.
