Flowers in St. Mary’s
‘Consider the lilies, how they grow,’ and how lovely it is to have flowers in St. Mary’s week by week. The Flower Group is a team of willing and committed skilful volunteers who arrange flowers of their own choice or appropriate to the season of the church’s year. This gives us a variety of colours and styles throughout the year, except during Advent and Lent, when there are traditionally no flowers in church. At Christmas, Easter, and Harvest the group works together to decorate the church and, in the spring, makes posies to be distributed in church on Mothering Sunday.
This small group is always willing to welcome newcomers. No experience is necessary, just a love of flowers and boundless enthusiasm, as we all help each other.
Flowers can also be arranged to remember a loved one or celebrate a special event, such as a birthday or anniversary. These and the weekly flowers are paid for by donations, which are gratefully received.
