|Ready for the weekend|
After we had finished the morning celebration of Holy Communion there was a sudden influx of flower arrangers with leaves, secateurs, water...and flowers to create a Festival of Flowers organised by the Friends of St Cuthbert's Bellingham. The idea was simply to fill the church with garden flowers as we move towards the end of Eastertide. The Easter Garden is still in church (till Whitsun) as a reminder of the deadness of Good Friday (Jesus' death on the Cross represented by the dead leaves) and the new life replacing it at Easter with Christ's Resurrection (represented by the living plants flowering in the moss and grass) near to the tomb empty but for the discarded graveclothes.
PCC meeting number two in the evening.
