57th Flower Festival

20 Jul 21

Flower Festival 2021 will be (of necessity) very different again this year. It is obvious why. 

This year’s festival will have the theme ‘Remember’ we will look back on our past festivals. Be able to thank key workers who have done so much for us all over these past months and remember those who have been lost or suffered. It will be different, but it will be in church. 

It is not as usual as actual preparation time has been so limited. There is still great uncertainty as to how many of our regular visitors will be able or prepared to come. 

It is expected that Covid19 restrictions will have been greatly eased and the wearing of masks will be worn by those who wish to. Hand sanitizer will be at the entrance for those who wish to use it. If you are uncertain on the day you want to come please look at our website www.ansleychurch.org 

This year the church will be open August Bank Holiday Weekend:

Saturday 28th 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Sunday 29th 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.

Monday 30th 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. 

The festival will be committed to God at the service at 10.30 a.m. on Sunday 22nd

There will be a Sunday service at 10.30 a.m. and a closing service on Monday evening at 5.30 p.m. 

There will be an opportunity to leave your burdens by putting a stone at the foot of a cross. Or to offer thanks by putting a flower into an arrangement. Or to put a prayer request in the jar. These prayers will be brought to the altar at our final service on Monday evening. 

Some of you may remember Dr Baker who used to practice in Ansley in the 60s and then emigrated to Australia. While he was sorting through his things he came across Cine films of early flower festivals. These have now been converted in to a 20 minute DVD although the commentary has been lost the pictures tell the story. This will be shown in the vestry. 

Ansley Morris will be dancing in the churchyard (weather permitting otherwise in church) on Monday afternoon. 

Refreshments will be available, there will be the usual produce stall and aa raffle for the cake. 

We will making donations amounting to 10% of the income to the Acorn Children’s Hospice 5% and the Nuneaton League of Friends 5%. The remainder will be for church funds.  

Over the previous 56 years God had guided us and we have raised almost £72,000 and been able to donate over £22,000 to charities. 

We pray God will be with us again this year as we are moving forward in faith and pray that we can welcome many visitors to our church again.
