Harvest festival services were held at Buckland Brewer Methodist Church recently, which had been tastefully decorated with gifts of fruit and flowers by women members, helped by the Youth Club.
Morning service was conducted by Rev Donald Cox, of Appledore, and evening service, in which Church of England friends joined, by Rev J Owen Clutterbuck. Mr F Babb played at both services.
A children’s gift service was held in the afternoon, when Mrs Clutterbuck received the gifts and spoke to the children. Collections at this service was for the Freedom from Hunger Campaign, and £5 will be sent from the Sunday school.
The Monday evening service was followed by a faith supper, convened by Mesdames T Brown and W Prance. The gifts were then sold by Mr C Babb.
