Flower arrangements in the Church are provided by the Flower Group, which meets monthly on Friday afternoons. Our aim is to enhance the beauty of the church building by ensuring fresh flowers are regularly in place which reflect the church’s year. A themed Flower Festival has often coincided with the Chesterton Festival. Experienced and novice flower arrangers are always welcome.
