Open Churches Weekend!

St Paulinus Church, Church Circle, opened its doors to visitors with displays of wedding dresses, flowers and wedding memorabilia.  Thank you Wendy for all Things Brides and Beautiful and Lisa from Forget me nots for supporting our event! We had a Fun Afternoon, served bacon butties, cream teas, there were prayer stations around the church and people appreciate being able to light a candle.  We had a display of our Family of 12 churches (photos courtesy of Dik & Joy Allison and Robert Brown) On Sunday we had a Songs of Praise when we sang the top 8 wedding hymns chosen by local couples and had a slide show of local wedding photos.  The weekend finished with wedding cake and bubbly!  Our theme for the weekend was Marriage – celebrating the goodness of marriage which ‘strengthens society and enriches community.’  Eight of our churches from our Family of 12 were open for visitors. Thank you to everyone who supported our events. Check out the photos!
