The Church's Year in Flowers
A Selection of Flower Arrangements

Anyone - whether experienced or not - is always welcome to join the 'Flower Group',
an informal and independent group of volunteers (no fees!)

The theme for January is usually white
in keeping with the normal celebrations
of this time, white for the garments
worn by those being baptised,
for water and for cleansing.
White is also for the dove of peace.
Each year a different theme is chosen
which is intended to run
throughout the year to come.

 

This theme is repeated at the altar at Whitsun,
'White Sunday' for the white garments
worn by the candidates for confirmation.
White flowers also remind us of
the water of baptism
which has washed and cleansed us,
and also of that first Pentecost when
the Holy Spirit came like a mighty wind
and empowered the apostles
to set out out as God's messengers
to the world.
