FLOWER FESTIVAL AND FAYRE 2018 - SATURDAY 2ND JUNE TO WEDNESDAY 6TH JUNE


OUR MISSION STATEMENT

We are a gathering of diverse people from all backgrounds, seeking community and guidance through Christian worship and prayer.

We aim to create a space where people can find themselves affirmed, included, challenged, and confident to ask difficult questions.

We are committed to helping the poor, powerless and underprivileged in our own community and beyond.

We aim to support children, parents and all vulnerable members of the community.

We find the love of Christ to be an inspiration to us, and feel called to share this with as many as possible.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Our worship style is traditional Anglican. For Eucharist services the priest wears an Alb and Chasuble.

Evensong services are held once a year in each of the following churches Walpole St Peter's Church (September), St Mary's Church West Walton (August) and in the now closed but still consecrated nearby Walpole St Andrew's Church (June).

The tradition of the church is to have a musical setting for the Sunday Eucharist.

The midweek Eucharist services are held throughout the year at 10.30am (In Lent these are followed by a simple Lent Lunch hosted by individual members of the congregation from both Walpole St Peter's Church and St Mary's West Walton - Information on these is available on the News page).

There is a traditional Carol Service, a celebration of the Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve and a Eucharist Service on Christmas Day. Other special and High Day services take place as appropriate.

Baptisms can be arranged as part of the Sunday Eucharist service and are in place of the sermon or may take place outside the main service.
