FLOWER FESTIVAL & EXHIBITION 2018 COMING SOON

A warm invitation from St. Hilda’s

To our Flower Festival and Exhibition 7th & 8th September 2018

 

The theme for 2018 is… RUN THE RACE SET BEFORE US

Normally our Flower Festival is held in July... Apologies to anyone who didn’t see our poster or website about the change of date and has been wondering what had happened.

The date was changed to coincide with The Bishops Mission, from September 6th to the 9th 2018, when the Northern Bishops and Deanery team are coming together in mission, inspired by The Archbishop of York, John Sentamu  to get involved  and take part in this weekend. As a result, we are delighted to say we have two guest speakers from this team, The Bishop of Lancaster: The Rt Revd Jill Duff and The Revd Miles Baker.  

On Friday evening, the 7th September, we open the doors for The Preview of the Flowers at 7:00pm, with cheese and Wine, after sufficient time has passed, to see the exhibition, the entertainment begins.  Our speakers and a Musical Show. 

The Exhibition has a fun idea to a serious theme. Using runner beans as the runners in the race, with twists and turns along the way, making it difficult and not always plain sailing for the runners.  Christ The Redeemer is waiting with outstretched arms at the end of the race!

Everyone has another opportunity to see the Exhibition on Saturday the 8th September from 10:00am until 6:00pm. Includes refreshments and stalls in the church hall.

Suggested donation of £5.00 for Friday evening, which  includes cheese and wine and entertainment..

 

We would also like to offer the opportunity to sponsor a flower arrangement, in memory of a

Loved one, as a dedication to someone, or for whatever reason you choose.

A Warm Welcome to St Hilda’s and St George’s church was given to Stephanie Keates.

 

Stephanie was ordained Deacon on Saturday 30th June at St Nicholas Cathedral and was welcomed by both churches during evensong, held at St George's church on Sunday evening the 1st July. This was followed by drinks and a buffet in the hall.

We hope Stephanie will be very happy in Jesmond and look forward to getting to know her better.
