Each person has contributed in their own way and we have done our best getting to grips with technology and doing things a different way.

All proceed received following this event via the “give.net” button on our home page, or click https://www.give.net/ansleypccfabricfund/oneoff are now for church funds. We will be sending the amount received during August and September to Nuneaton Hospital League of Friends and the Acorn Children’s Hospice, charities we have supported for years. The final total £876

We hope and pray to be able to welcome you to our church, in person, for our 2021 festival 27th – 30th August. The Virtual Flower Festival went live as planned in time for the 28th August.  This being a totally new thing for us, we were not sure just how things would work.  It was good that we tried it a day earlier because for some reason, and we are not sure why, it became detached from the web site.  This was rectified and we are not aware of any other issues.

At the time of writing over 600 people have viewed the presentation via the church website and an additional 70 have gone directly to the You Tube page.

We are very grateful to all those who went to such great lengths to provide a picture for the festival and we have had some very encouraging, and rewarding,  comments which alone have made the whole thing worthwhile.

“Really enjoyed watching the virtual flower festival.  Although not in the physical space of church and walking around the beautiful displays, this was a fantastic display. The theme was so apt. In these difficult times, we must remember those who have cared, supported and loved those close to them and the community.  Well done! and thank you.” 

“I’ve just watched the flower festival montage and I just want to say how amazing it is. You have really created something beautiful and touching. It brought a tear to my eye. 

As always very well done and congratulations.”

A New Year During my early years the New Year did not have an impact on me.  I was tucked up in bed well before midnight.  As I grew older I remember my mum opening the back door to “Let the old year out and the new year in.”  Sometimes we lived close enough to the village church to hear the bells ringing in the New Year.&n...
