Summer Festival 2018
Faith, fellowship and fun – a celebration of 700 years!
Friday 8 June to Thursday 14 June
What does ‘celebration’ mean to you? What, if asked, would you choose to depict just one aspect of the church’s 700 year history? Combining celebration, the past, and, of course, the present and future, we are planning to hold a Summer Festival as part of the 700th Anniversary Celebrations of St. Eustachius’. The idea is to invite the various groups in the church to create displays to celebrate, with historical artifacts if possible, the life of St. Eustachius’ church. The event will include floral displays as well as contributions from the various groups within the Church and, hopefully, bring many visitors to join in the celebration of this historic milestone.
It is planned to have a number of items which are rarely seen in their entirety on display, such as church vestments, silver and some parish records. We are asking the different groups if they would like to contribute a display to showcase their activities. Information about the history of the church will be available, alongside Messy Church and musical activities during the week. Photos of past events will also be an important part of the exhibits being shown.
The floral displays will be provided by local businesses and schools, all of whom have already been engaging with the concept in a very positive way.
Can you help? Can any group that you belong to in the church help? This is an event for us all to get involved – the church stands at the centre of the town, let’s show that we are also at the heart of the community, especially in this, our 700th year!
Refreshments and anniversary merchandise will be on sale.
There are opportunities for everyone to get involved and we do need your help to make this event a success.
