Come along – embody the Word!
“Enjoyed every minute, learned lots and laughed lots!”
“So very enriching. A lovely relaxed and joyous atmosphere”
For as long as anyone can remember Elizabeth Gardiner has been responsible for arranging the flowers in the Church each Sunday. This she has done willingly and without complaint. Now, however, she is unable to continue, and efforts to find a successor have failed. In order to continue the important and much appreciated custom of not only enhancing the appearance of the Church but also providing a tangible memento to those who are particularly in our thoughts, an alternative system will be required. Elizabeth will continue to make up the rota.
It is proposed that all those on the Flower List who have agreed to provide flowers on a particular date be asked to put their flowers in the vases provided. This also applies to the Rose Bowl. If this seems difficult it is suggested that tied bunches, available in all supermarkets, be used. These can be put straight into the vases without further arrangement. It has been customary for this to be done on a Saturday morning when the Halls are open on via Andrea in the Office.
In this way we will be able to continue our valuable contribution to Church life.
Walk with the Word: Exodus
A huge thank you to everyone who helped with Drama Kirk’s walk last Saturday, including our actors, stewards and those who helped out behind the scenes. Thanks also to everyone who came along to see it – your support is very much appreciated.
