Harvest Festival Service 2023

Harvest Festival Service 2023

Thank you so much to everyone whose time and preparation contributed to such a wonderful time of worship for our Harvest Festival this year.

The service, which was led by members of our Junior Church and Youth Group was thoughtfully constructed, imaginatively presented and very well delivered by our young people. We thank them and their leaders very much indeed.

We also thank our flower arranging team for creating such wonderful displays of flowers and harvest produce and everyone who brought harvest gifts to present.

The harvest goods have been donated to The Friary in West Bridgford to support their work with those struggling with homelessness.

Platinum Jubilee Weekend

Platinum Jubilee Weekend

Our Platinum Jubilee Celebrations began on Thursday 2nd June as our Church Choir joined with the choirs of Nottingham RC Cathedral and Derby Cathedral for a concert a musical celebration of Her Majesty the Queen in St. Barnabas Cathedral. This included a range of music connected with royal occasions as well as the piece, A life lived with grace, written to be sung as the Jubilee beacons were lit across the Commonwealth.

On Sunday 5th June, as well as celebrating Pentecost, morning worship marked the seventy years of service of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
During worship, we received the beautiful Jubilee Bowl, commissioned from Sophie Robins, using some of our grant award from the Arts Councils’ Let’s Create Jubilee Fund.

Following worship, we gathered (mostly in our halls due to the rain and cold) for our Street Party to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Platinum Jubilee Street Party

Platinum Jubilee Street Party

Following worship on Sunday 5th June 2022, we gathered inside and out (but mostly inside because of rain and cold temperatures) for our Street Party to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

There was plenty of food, musical entertainment and games.

It was a wonderful occasion and grateful thanks go to Jill G and her team for the wonderful planning and organisation which allowed us to have such a good time together on this special occasion.

Jubilee Bowl

Jubilee Bowl

We were delighted that Jill G was successful in her application to the Arts Council’s Let’s Create fund.

The award paid for four craft sessions with Sophie Robins, an established mosaic artist in Nottingham, two for adults and two for children and young people. She helped those participating to create mosaic stepping-stones and these were displayed in church on the occasion of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee when we also received our Jubilee Bowl which was commissioned from Sophie with the remainder of the grant.
