Brass band, flowers and worship at Cawston Church
There will be a full programme of events at St Agnes in Cawston this weekend as the Aylsham and district Twelve Towers festival gets started. Tony Rothe reports.
Cawston church will be bursting with colour and packed with flower arrangements as the parish stages its 2017 Flower Festival on Saturday and Sunday June 3 and 4. Visitors will also find much to see in the village as Cawston is invaded by scarecrows. The village Scarecrow Festival will test the creativity and ingenuity of villagers, on the theme of children's books. Scarecrow guides will be available on the weekend from the village shops.
The popular Cawston Band will be returning to the church for a concert on Saturday at 7:30pm. Nestled in among the flower arrangements in this stunning medieval building, visitors are set for a treat from this highly decorated bunch of musicians.
On Friday June 2 from 10am to 2pm, the intriguing Cawston chalice case will be coming back to the church along with an expert from the museum service, who will help us to understand its historical significance and how it might have been used.
Sunday morning’s worship will take the form of Messy Church at 10:30am in the church grounds. Under the title Firestarter, those taking part will explore in a hands-on way the fiery theme of Pentecost. The Songs of Praise service at 4:30pm will provide an opportunity for everyone to sing their favourite hymns, and this will close the festival weekend.
All this activity is part of the Twelve Towers festival which sees the parishes of the Aylsham and District Team Ministry hosting over 100 events this June. More details of these and other festival events at http://aylshamteamministry.org.uk/12towers
