Flower Festival Photographs

The Flower Festival has finished.  We could not let the memory of it fade into the mists of time after so much effort from our arrangers and helpers who have worked so hard to remind us all of the sacrifices of the combatants and also of those left waiting at home during the ‘Great War‘.

Photographs of the festival are available via this page – they may be viewed as a Gallery or by selection from the Programme of Displays. They will open in a new tab in your browser.

For some displays there is more than one photograph – in such cases ‘clicking’ on any one  will allow a scrollable gallery and for each to be viewed full size. Using your browser ‘back‘ button will allow you to return to this page.

30th August 2018 – we received this message today:

Thank you for a wonderful festival, for the beautiful Blooms and the lovely memories, peace and harmony and most of all for the wonderful friendships. Please show my photographs. I hope your enjoy them”

We are delighted to do as asked and now add A View by Colette Cullen to the Photographs which may be viewed here.

Changes at St Mary’s

From the beginning of June some service times are going to change, making it easier for you to plan your very busy Sundays.

The new schedule will be as follows:

1st Sunday   9.15am Holy Communion (BCP)

                        3.30pm Baptism (by arrangement)

2nd Sunday  9.15am Holy Communion (Common Worship)

3rd Sunday  3.30pm Café Church

4th Sunday  9.15am  Holy Communion (Common Worship)

The changes are as a result of Anna, our Vicar, taking responsibility for the churches at Carlton and Drax. We are looking at our afternoon services as being welcoming to all families, for those who might be wondering exactly what church can be like. 

Those who are interested in baptisms please contact Anna on 270325 to ask when services can be arranged.

So services for June and July will be as follows

3rd June 9.15am Holy Communion 

10th June 9.15am Holy Communion

17th June 3.30pm Café Church for Father’s Day

24th June 9.15am Holy Communion

1st July 9.15am Holy Communion 

8th July 9.15am Holy Communion

15th July 3.30pm Café Church

22nd July 9.15am Holy Communion

29th July 11.00am Family Service including Baptism

So what is Café Church?

An informal gathering for children, parents, grandparents and everyone to chat, think about life and families and share our thoughts (but only if we want to). There will be an area for children to play and for the adults to relax together before the strains of the week force themselves on us all. Join us in the peace of our church. Bring Dad for Father’s Day and let him chill out.
