Christmas Flowers at St. Edward's Church, Kettering, 2018Christmas Flowers

During Advent the tradition is to have no flowers, honouring a season of preparation but also somewhat penitential.
This makes the Christmas displays of flowers stand out, as our Parish Flower Group at St Edward’s celebrates its 25th anniversary. Our thanks and amazement for them, and for all the flower-arrangers in our four churches. Congratulations. You may be able to spot, not only the traditional colours, red and silver, of the season, but also a hint of the three kings, and of the shepherds, and the following of the star. (Some may spot the sheep!)
