Harvest Weekend 2015.

Our Harvest Weekend is the first weekend in October (3rd-4th) and as in recent years we will be supporting the work of All We Can — previously known as the Methodist Relief and Development Fund.

On the Saturday evening at 7:30pm we will be showing the film "The Hundred-Foot Journey" starring Helen Mirren. Certificate PG. The film lasts just under 2 hours. There will be popcorn or Bombay Mix available.

Our morning services at 9:15am and 10:45 am (All age-worship) will be using materials provided by All WE Can for their 2015 Harvest Appeal "Create a Buzz".

This year, All We Can is focussing on their work in Ethiopia, which is helping people to make their land more fruitful and earn an income outside of the harvest season through beekeeping.

Special Gift Aid Harvest envelopes will be available in church shortly for use over our Harvest Weekend.

We have been invited by the Parish of the Resurrection to share in a Harvest Lunch on the Sunday. It will be held in The Alton Assembly Rooms and will be a 'Bring & Share' lunch starting with drinks at 12.30pm. So if you are able, do come along and enjoy the company of good friends from Church and across the Parish. Please bring something with you to share. There are sign up sheets in all the churches. Let us know if you are coming and also what you will bring to add to the table. A simple indication if it is something savoury, or a pudding/dessert or cheese would be a great help. There will be activities for the children and it would be marvellous if it were an all-age event!

All We Can — formerly known as MRDF — helps people in some of the world's poorest communities to become all that they can. With our roots in Methodism, we believe that wherever people live or whatever their situation, everyone has God-given potential built in, and it is our vision to see that potential fulfilled.
To do this, we work through talented local partners — community organisations, churches, and individuals — people rooted in poor communities, who understand local problems and are passionate about solving them, but don't have all the resources they need to achieve their vision. We listen, trust and provide support to help create positive, long-term change.
