In The Parish of Kingswinford, St. Mary


St Mary's is very proud of its Flower Arranging Team.

The team currently consists of ten regular dedicated members who provide weekly arrangements of fresh flowers in Church throughout the year.  The changing seasons of the year, encourage the use of many different materials and colours, each reflecting their own special appeal, to create inspirational displays. 

For major Church festivals, i.e., Christmas, Easter, Pentecost and Harvest, when extra and larger displays are needed, we are able to call on additional flower arrangers from within our own congregation, to help with this task.  Everyone agrees that the completed displays certainly enhance the beauty of our wonderful Church building.

In addition to the regular church flowers and major festival flowers, we are very involved in our Flower Festivals and Open weekends.  The recent Festival of Flowers Music and Worship held in May of this year, (a few of the arrangements are shown above), was very well received and extremely successful.  All monies raised over the festival weekend were divided between St Mary's Church Restoration Fund and World Vision

All flower displays in Church rely on donations given to the flower fund, and gifts are most welcome so that we are able to continue to provide flowers throughout the year.

We are also able to provide special flower arrangements in memory of a loved family member, to recall a significant event or anniversary. These flowers are usually set at the base of the font, near the main church entrance from the porch.  A donation is required to cover the cost of such flowers, and a small personal flower card can be included if requested.  Please contact Flower Secretary Sheila Gregg, if you would like to make use of this service.

Finally, if you feel you have a flair for working with flowers and would like to become involved, please get in touch, we can certainly find opportunities for anyone who would like to join us.
