Church Flowers at St. Gregory's

I feel very privileged in heading up a team of such talented and supportive flower arrangers at St Gregory's.    The number of people involved has increased over the last twelve months which means that at Festival times we are able to decorate even more of this lovely building.  The wonderful facilities which we now have in the tower make the work that we do so much easier. There are so many people who visit the church and we hope that the flowers which are regularly in the church and in the porch help to make them feel welcome, as well as give pleasure to the congregation.

I should add at this point that we wouldn't be able to do what we do if it wasn't for the generosity of so many of the congregation who donate money towards the cost of the flowers, both for the festivals and throughout the year. The Team is extremely grateful for those donations as we rely on them completely to achieve the results that we do. In the past year there were quite a few weddings and the flowers for these have been enjoyed by many.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who help, in whatever way, to make the church look so lovely and to earn The Team so many compliments.

Remember if you would like to help with the arranging at St. Gregory's do contact me or speak to one of The Team.

A wonderful pilgrimage to the Holy Land

Friday 15th February – Sunday 24th February 2019

Led by Revd Stephen Earl

You are warmly invited to join me in visiting the beautiful places we read about in the Bible.
A land of contrasts – from fertile Galilee and the ‘calm of hills above’ to the ‘steep and rugged
pathway’ to Jerusalem; from the bread basket of the central plains to the barrenness of the
Jordan Valley and Dead Sea.

Following in the steps of Jesus, this will be truly memorable ‘pilgrimage of a lifetime’ visiting Biblical and other sitesof antiquity, meeting those who inhabit this stunning landof varied beauty – ‘the land of milk and honey’... an experience you will never forget!

Early booking is advised to avoid disappointment. Bookings will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in joining this tour and for full details, the Brochure & Booking Form are available or request from:
