Harvest Festival at Barton was on Sunday 18 September, with Mrs Margaret Havers leading the service. Envelopes had been distributed so that the congregation could support the "All We Can" appeal (formerly MRDF).

During the service, video clips from the All We Can site were shown, and a story about Nasra, from Syria, was read by members of the congregation. This told of how much the people of Syria had lost, leaving them with only very basic supplies.

Harvest gifts, which had previously been placed on the communion table, were symbolically removed, leaving only bread and water.

A Buffet lunch followed the service. Donations for this and the envelope appeal amounted to just over £690. The Harvest gifts, together with items from Rainbows, Brownies and the Pre-School harvest, were donated to Lymington Basics Bank.
