Harvest Supper
Harvest-Appeal-2019

Harvest Celebrations began on Saturday evening when folk from the Parish of the Resurrection joined Alton Methodist Church at the annual Harvest Supper. Thanks to the catering team all enjoyed an excellent meal. The Quiz Master organised several quizzes to strain the brain followed by a little more lighthearted entertainment with a couple of cartoons. The evening was rounded off with a thought from Rev Philip Simpkins who reminded us of Psalm 34:8 encouraging all to "Taste and see that the Lord is good." This was followed by a rousing rendition of the traditional harvest hymn "We plough the fields and scatter the good seed on the land".
"Let Hope Take Root" was the theme of Sunday morning's Harvest Festival Service when we gave thanks for our plenty whilst remembering the struggle many have to feed their families. A collection was taken in aid of the Methodist Charity "All We Can" and donations were also received for the Alton Foodbank.
