    Altar Flowers in Church

    St Mary & St Lambert, Stonham Aspal with Mickfield 

    There are two ways in which flowers and displays are put in Church.

    Altar Flowers
    The weekly rota is now available at the back of the Church. You will notice that this is done in two weeks sessions, please don’t let that put you off, it is not a central heated home so many flowers will keep for this length of time. Perhaps you have an Anniversary or birthday of a loved one when you would like to place flowers at the altar. Please put your name on the rota and I will make sure that you have all the details that you need. If you would like flowers to be put in church but are not able to do so and would prefer to give a donation, please contact me.
    Flowers at Festivals
    For festivals and special events each person has either a window or an area to put their arrangement. The Church festivals include, Easter, Harvest, Christmas and during the year the Church may be decorated for services such as a special Songs of Praise, Royal occasion etc.
    If there is anything that you would like to know about joining the team who decorates the Church for festivals or being on the weekly rota please do not hesitate to contact me on 01449711393 or alexjenkinson@btopenworld.com
    Many thanks Alex Pratt
