Flowers in Church
It has been our custom, and indeed it is a custom in most churches, that there are no flowers on the Altars during Lent. This helps to highlight the contrast with Easter when our churches are filled with Easter Lilies and other flowers to celebrate this special and important Church Festival.
The Easter flowers are given by members of the church (and often this includes former members of St John's who have moved away) to remember loved ones who have died. A list of all those remembered in this way is placed on the High Altar over Easter and it is good to feel surrounded by all those memories of our families, friends and past members of St John's.
If you would like to remember a loved one in this way please have a word with us and we will be pleased to receive your donation towards the cost of the Easter Lilies and flowers together with a note of the names of the people you would like remembered.
We end with a short verse about lilies:
