Flower Festival 2011

Our annual flower festival took place over the weekend of July 2nd and 3rd. Much preparation went into the event; members and friends were busy for most of the week before putting their flowers into their allocated spaces. Eventually the furniture was moved, the oasis cut and soaked, the programmes printed, and the flowers positioned. At 10-30a.m. on Saturday the doors were opened and the visitors welcomed in.
Our service on Suinday was led by Carole Parkinson, who stayed with our theme by making another flower display as part of her service. Evening worship was led by Phil Hartshorn.
The theme of the weekend was "Bible Stories" in honour of the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the bible. As an additional celebration, we put a display of different editions of the bible in the back room for people to story alongside the refreshments.
The weekend was a huge success with many visitors enjoying the displays.
