We would like to say a huge thank you to all who took part in the Flower Festival last weekend. To those who created the wonderful displays, and the ladies from the Thursday group who worked all day making teas and coffees and provided lovely cakes for our visitors. Also, thanks to those of you who helped to welcome visitors and introduce them to our Church and to the displays. Finally, thank you to those who came to support us and bring along family and friends.
We would like to thank especially Marian who produced a beautiful sound track for us to use and Spencer who played the organ creating a wonderful atmosphere in the Church.
The response was uplifting. Most visitors had never been in the church before and were effusive in their praise of the work that had gone into the floral interpretations of the hymns. We would like to share some comments, “It touched my soul”, “A perfect mix, of religion, flowers and music”, “A beautiful Church, which we have never visited apart from walking through your garden many times. Absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for being a wonderful part of our community and also for the brilliant work for the homeless.” Nearly £450 was raised during the day in donations in the Church and for refreshments for ‘Serving the Homeless.’ Thank you again. Theresa and Jo.
