Celebrating our Queen’s Coronation Diamond Jubilee

A new seat beneath the yew trees and another exciting flower festival marked the parishioners’ weekend celebration of the Queen’s 60 years on the throne. Cream teas were served on both Saturday and Sunday and, the jubilation ended with a rousing Songs of Praise.

With great imagination, the atmosphere was created from the moment of entering with Union flags and bunting leading to the font with its flower display focussed round the Jack. Flags on the pews led the way to the window displays pictured.

These photographs help to show you something of our church.

The photos below show: a red, white and blue pedestal display at the altar. The window displays were heralded with appropriate titles. Photo 2, Waiting for the Queen; 3, Coronation garden at Buckingham Palace; 4, Visiting London; 5, The Balcony; 6, Picnic in the Park; 7, Coronation Chicken; and 8, Time for tea and a read about the Coronation.

We have special Harvest Celebrations at All Saints’ Rodden

All Saints’ church in the middle of Rodden Farm lives up to its unique atmosphere with a special weekend of celebrations for Harvest. The countryside comes to life in the floral displays created by the nimble fingers of ladies of the congregation.

Flower displays atop of traditional milk churns highlight the harvest loaf and grapes on the communion table. Scenes throughout the church represent: Harvest of the Seas, Farming, Farmyard animals, Poultry, Birds, Bees and Butterflies, and Gardening. All colourful and significant, as the attached photographs illustrate.

"Find the 12 church mice" was, a few years ago, one of the questions in a special quiz for children – and-the-not so young! Organists play as visitors view on Saturday and Sunday, whilst in the hall teas and stalls attract more attention. On Sunday it is cream teas! This is followed by a special service of songs of praise, entitled Harvest Praise ending with the traditional Harvest Supper on Monday.
