There will be a Flower Festival in St Mary’s next May! The theme is Go into all the world, inspired by the Risen Lord’s command to His disciples: ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation’ (St Mark 16.15). The floral displays will celebrate the Church around the world, highlighting the faithfulness and imagination of Christians in every generation as the Gospel has been carried to all lands. There’ll also be special services, refreshments, musical events and more.
The Festival will open on Ascension Day, Thursday 25 May, and run over the Bank Holiday weekend: Friday 26 May to Monday 29 May. Put the dates in your diary now!
We will need help from the whole Church Family to make this a beautiful and spectacular weekend. We want it to be a gift to the town and a celebration of the life of the Church here in Attleborough and Besthorpe and throughout the Christian world. If you’re interested in helping in any way or would just like to know more, whether you (think you) know anything about flowers or not, come to the initial meeting over a drink in the Upper Room on Thursday 1 December at 7.30pm. There will be a job for everyone!
