Flower Guild


flowerguildThe flower guild was formed almost 40 years ago to ensure that our church is always decorated with flowers appropriate for the season.

We welcome new members who do not need any previous experience in flower arranging; help is always available and occasionally we have a demonstration lesson.

Members are expected to help for two sessions during the year of two weeks each, (flowers usually last for two weeks), and also at the main festivals of Christmas and Easter.

A flower festival is held during the Minchinhampton fayre weekend, which is in September; this has been very successful in raising funds for charity.

We are often asked for special arrangements for weddings and funerals. There is a charge for this service which goes to help our funds.

The coordinator for the Guild is Kathy Hurst who can be contacted by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or telephone 01453 882960.

The Flower Guild is looking for Dummies

We are organising a Wedding Festival in the Church for the Country Fayre weekend – 13th / 14th / 15th September.

We are looking for some mannequins (dummies) to display wedding dresses. If you have one you could loan us, that would be great.

Also if you would like to take part in the display by offering to loan us a dress, we would be pleased to hear from you.

Annual Report - April 2018

The Flower Guild was reformed in March 2018 after being disbanded during the Re-ordering. Several new people have recently joined and we now have a very strong team of 30 members. The first event was Easter flowers and the Church was beautifully decorated with Easter lilies. The next big event is the Re-dedication service on the 27th of April followed by the Open Day on the 12th of May and Trinity Sunday on the 27th of May. There are also 6 weddings booked between July and August, So there is a busy time ahead for the Flower Guild.
Please also note we have a fund raising Coffee Morning on Friday 22nd June in Mandy Jutsum's garden. We very much hope that as many of you as possible will be able to join us.
