Come, ye thankful people, come raise the song of harvest home.
11.15am: Festal Parish Communion.

Come and celebrate Harvest and join in the singing of favourite hymns such as “We plough the fields and scatter.” The service is at the latter time of 11.15am; there’s no service at 9.30am. Donations of non-perishable goods will be gratefully accepted. Many like to bring gifts up to the altar at Harvest-tide and these will be donated to the Trussell Trust; see below for some suggestions of non-perishable goods.
Harvest Lunch in the Hinton Hall.
We invite you to a Bring and Share lunch at the Hinton Hall. There will be a list of suggestions in church that you could bring for the lunch or just bring your favourite dish. Drinks are provided. Do come and join us.
Preparing the church.
If you would like to bring flowers, fruit or vegetables to decorate the church please bring them to Hinton Hall on Friday morning, 12th October or to St John’s on Saturday 13th when we will be decorating the Church from 9.30am.
