FLOWER ARRANGING TEAM
Flowers have been placed in churches for hundreds of years to glorify God and assist us in worshipping Him. We remember Jesus referred to lilies in His ministry: ‘Consider how the lilies of the field grow. They toil not neither do they spin and yet I tell you Solomon in all his splendour was not attired like one of these’ Matt 6v28.

At the major festivals of Christmas, Mothering Sunday, Easter and Harvest all the teams work together to fill the church with beautiful colours and aromas.
There are no flowers in church during the reflective time of Lent and only greenery during Advent.
Flowers can be provided for Weddings and Funerals. Anyone interested in these services should contact the Parish Office and one of our team members will call you back to discuss your requirements. Many people find that having a floral tribute placed in church is a fitting way to commemorate a loved one perhaps on their birthday or the anniversary of their death. Others may wish to remember a special wedding anniversary.
Donation for flowers in church are always most welcome.
Flower Fund Appeal
On behalf of all the flower ladies we would like to thank everyone who answered the special appeal for the Flower Fund. Including Gift Aid very nearly £1,200 has been donated and we are touched by your response.
We are most grateful for your support and appreciation and we will be good/careful stewards of your generosity.
We look forward to continuing this service and hope that all who visit this lovely Church will find that the flowers add to the experience of worship and bring joy and comfort.
