2014 Flower Festival

At the end of July we held a wonderful flower festival in church, organised by Glenys, it was an incredible success, raising £1700 for church funds.  

The flower arrangements were  based on the theme 'This Wonderful World', twenty two arrangements done by church members and friends. The titles of the arrangements varied from 'The Garden of Eden to 'Out of Africa', they were all so wonderful and varied that it is impossible to describe them all. Every morning the arrangers turned up to remove any drooping flowers, top up water etc. fighting against the amazingly hot weather. Roz produced many posters, and information concerning the displays to her usual high standard. 

We must not forget the outside helpers, putting up the tents, moving chairs and tables, luckily we were not bothered by wind or rain. The weather of course was ideal for the people sitting outside enjoying the home made cakes, tea and coffee, all supplied and served by willing church members. Helpers turned up as promised, working on the door, collecting money, the church silver, displayed on the altar, was diligently guarded, the food servers changed at regular intervals, as did those who offered to do the washing up!

All in all it was a marvellous community effort – well done everybody. A big 'thank you' to everybody who helped. SvdB.

Ordinary time 2014

From the Vicar
Following Pentecost, the church enters the period of Ordinary Time, which will last over the Summer and into Autumn. However, the word “Ordinary” does not mean “usual or average”, but simply that it lies outside the seasons of Lent / Easter and Advent / Christmas.
