Flower Sponsorship List

If you would like to sponsor the flower arrangements in church for a special event, whether a celebration or in memory of a loved one who has died, then please enter all necessary details in the relevant week on the Flower Sponsorship Schedule which is on the table at the back of the church.

The rota for 2017 is on the clipboard at the back of the church. Please do not 'claim' more than one date initially, to give others the chance to find a suitable date.  If you find that your preferred date is already taken, we suggest that you explore the possibility of a 'joint sponsorship' for that weekend.

If you have any queries, please speak to Chris Thompson.
