Spring Harvest comes together each year, through the dedication and commitment of many different people, from a number of different organisations across the church. There's a full-time team in Uckfield, East Sussex and a Theme Group who work on writing and planning our theme material each year. As a charity, we're supported by the Memralife Group board of directors.
