The flower arrangers provide arrangements and displays each week on a rota, as well as particularly special displays for festivals and big events. No experience necessary and the arrangements and vases can be put in place in less than an hour. Please speak to Vicar Chris if you think you might be able to help.
Before or after any of our services, please feel free to leave a prayer on our Prayer Tree, situated near the Votive Candles (near the pulpit). Each week these prayers will be offered up to God as part of our Intercessions during our mid-week Communion Service.

We are working towards our Royal Astronomical Brownie Challenge.
We have painted “moon” rocks; made pinhole reflectors showing the different star constellations;
stood in the Church car park watching the Moon and Venus in the sky; and experimented with the effect asteroids and comets have had over millions of years as they hit the Moon and Earth.
We put layers of flour, glitter and finally cocoa powder in a box to represent the strata of the moon and earth surfaces.
We dropped marbles of various sizes and with different forces to see how the layers were churned up or holes (craters) made.
We planted the flower bed in the Church Car Park in the autumn. The flowers are all coming into bloom!
Music has been offered in worship since Biblical times; this offering is vitally important, for music has the ability to transcend words; it is the language of the spirit. Music can inspire, excite, soothe, and heal; it can unite people of different backgrounds and nationalities, it can speak to people of all faiths and of none, and it can point the way to God.
The Church Choir meets on a Friday afternoon and would welcome new members to join them.
