The Craft group meets on 2nd and 4th Mondays every month and new members are always welcome. Bring along any craft you are interested in and get creative in company. Sometimes we jointly have a project, but we are always interested in new ideas and ventures. Simply bring your knitting if that is what floats your boat - and enjoy company and tea whilst you create.

The Church has a dedicated Team of Flower Arrangers who work hard to make the Church look beautiful throughout the year. The Altar, Font and Lady Chapel flowers are arranged each week throughout the year by our local volunteer flower arranging team who work on a rota. Many use seasonal flowers and foliage from their own gardens wherever possible.
The team can also help you with your wedding flowers, please click the Church Office for contact details email@example.com
Would you like to join the Flower Arranging Team?
Experience or no experience, we would love to hear from you. Don’t worry if you haven’t arranged church flowers before, we will be there to help you.
We try to have enough people on the team so that no-one feels overworked, we always need extra pairs of hands!
