Harvest 2018 and "All We Can"
Our Harvest will once more be supporting the work of 'All We Can' as we focus on their campaign for this year, "Let your light shine" which enables communities to be transformed through the use of solar irrigation systems, with a particular focus on Malawi.
During our Harvest service we will be hearing about this amazing work and among other things, be introduced to Shanu and his young family and how 'All We Can' are transforming their lives and the lives of so many others.

'All We Can' Harvest appeal gift aid envelopes will be available in church for you to use should you wish.
We are pleased to be able to say that our church has committed to being a Partner Church with 'All We Can' for a further year. We will continue to support them, pray for them and raise funds for the incredible work they do.
Later in the year, Matthew Forsyth will be able to share with us in worship once more as we celebrate the transformative work of 'All We Can' and the ways in which they bring hope, and change to some of the poorest communities in the world.
We also take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Jane Kent and Cath and Dave Worth for being our church link with 'All We Can" this past year and if there is anyone who would like to do this for the coming year, please let Keith know ASAP. Preparations
The church will be open from 10 am on Saturday 6 October to receive donations of flowers, foliage and produce for the harvest decorating. We would really welcome offers of help with the decoration.
Keith will be also be ready to receive items at the Harvest service on Sunday morning. We will be taking any non-perishable food to Foodbank and it sounds as if their shelves are fairly empty at present.
Please make sure items are within date.
Thank you for all your help.
