On Sunday 14th October at 10.30 a.m. the Harvest Festival Service will take place. Harvest Festival marks the end of the main Harvest season. We give thanks to God for the crops that have been grown and celebrate the hard work involved in reaping them.
During the Service people will be given an opportunity to donate food to the Basics Bank and St Dismas, a Charity that helps the Homeless.
More information about the basics bank can be found at http://www.southamptoncitymission.co.uk/basics-bank
if you wish to donate some Food please bring some with you. In the past the Charity has been given lots of Baked Beans so if you can another product would be appreciated. Donating is not compulsory you are very welcome to join us for the service whether or not you donate.
Harvest Festival is a lovely community event, which can be enjoyed by families, friends and occasional visitors. There will be an invitation to Tea, coffee and biscuits after the service.
The fruit and vegetables above were all produced within 5 miles of Hedge End Methodist Church and grown by people who are personally known to me.
