Welcome, a little about who we are...
Harvest Church is a group of ordinary people who have each met an extraordinary God who is transforming our lives. We have come to know Jesus in different ways but are all on a journey to become more like Him and help each other to follow Him.
We would be delighted to help you in any way. Please just ask – we’re very approachable and have people dedicated to help you!
Harvest Church (formerly AEFC) have a history dating back 70 years here in the market town of Alton, Hampshire. We are a part of the worldwide family of churches called Commission (a part of Newfrontiers). We are involved with other local churches and work in collaboration with them on many projects in the town, as well as being members of the Evangelical Alliance.
What can you expect on a Sunday?
We meet together on Sundays at 10.30am, in Alton Maltings. After a brief welcome, we will spend time praying together & singing songs of worship to Jesus because He is wonderfully changing our lives. We’ll also share stories of all God has done. At around 10.45 our children’s activities start for age groups from 0-16 years. If you would like your children to join in they are most welcome (In Harvest Church we operate a safeguarding policy with all our children’s workers having DBS checks). After some announcements and our offering, there will be some teaching from the Bible, followed by an opportunity for anyone to receive prayer. After our time together please stay on for refreshments around noon.
As a church we meet mid-week in small groups, in homes across Alton and beyond called Life Groups. We also have a group for people who are new to Harvest Church, the Connect group, you are welcome to join. We are actively involved in serving our community through a number of initiatives, including One Way, Lighthouse, Youth Groups, CAP, Stepping Stones, Kidz Klub, Toy Library, Alpha, Alton Town Pastors and through making our building available for our town to use, with several thousand visitors every month. You can find more information about who we are, what we do and how you can get involved by joining us one Sunday. We look forward to welcoming you.
