For many years St Mary and St Nicolas held a Flower Festival at the beginning of May to tie in with the Spalding Tulip Parade. This continued even after the last parade in 2013.
We have now decided to move to a different part of the year for a festival which encourages us to reflect and think as well as look and admire.
We have some creative people who spend months reflecting on the theme for the year and on a particular passage from the Bible. They produce displays of flowers and artefacts that are the outcome of their reflection.
They have taken time to look at the world through different eyes and to see how it looks and feels from a different perspective, so that they can share what they have seen and understood.
The result has been called “Visual Theology”.
Come and See
We hope that you will spend some time considering the displays in the setting of St Mary and St Nicolas Church - the historic parish church of Spalding that dates from 1284.
We invite you to make a donation towards the cost of the flowers and other items.
Any additional money will go towards the church and help with the support we give locally to Agape Foodbank, Spalding Street Pastors, Space4U Counselling service, and globally to Christian Aid and the other agencies which give help around the world.
