Craft a Poppy for the Square

Received 13 July

PoppyFor Remembrance Sunday (10th November) this year, we would like to decorate the railings leading up to the front doors of the church with hand-made poppies.

These can be made with whatever you wish as anything not weatherproof will be used inside the church. If you can knit or crochet, these will be suitable for outside as they can withstand getting wet.

There are many free poppy patterns available online; it would be lovely to have a variety of sizes and designs - we will need lots!

If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Foster: 01582 757983 or lisafoster223@gmail.com

Autumn International Service

We will have an international service in Autumn, where everybody will be invited to prepare a special dish from his/her country!

This is not all: we would like people to present/perform a poem, a song, a music that tells about your country of origin.
