Angel delight!

A memorable Angelic weekend 

AN ANGEL FESTIVAL with angels filling every nook and cranny of the Parish Church was a resounding success in December 2017.

 

The occasion began on the Friday with a crowded Coffee and Cake Morning with entertainment provided by cherubs from the School. The event  continued on the Saturday with an all-day 'open house' and continued in the evening with an outstanding Angel Tidings Concert featuring the talented Voces Seraphorum. 

And on the Sunday the weekend concluded with a Christingle service. The church was beautifully decorated with angels, many lighted, on the altar, window sills, lectern and font. Among the exhibits was a remarkable screen put together by Sheila Kindon who used pictures of angels taken from the Bible presented to her grandmother in 1902 to decorate it. 

The event, which took over two months to plan, was put together by a team of almost 20 parishioners led by Sue Short with contributions from the School and The Stitchers. The Festival was an amazingly successful event which has impressed everyone who has attended any part of it.
