Dig now, bloom later for Sheringham church
Members of Lighthouse Community Church in Sheringham gathered one Sunday in October to plant daffodil bulbs at various locations in Sheringham as part of programme of activities aimed at serving the local community. Tony Rothe reports.
The church has decided that periodically the church fellowship will take part in some activity which enable them to engage with and serve the Sheringham community. This will take the place of a traditional Sunday service, and it is hoped this will be a monthly occurrence.
The October activity involved teams of Lighthouse members going out to grassy banks near the new Reef swimming pool and near a new residential development on Holway Road in the town. Around 200 to 300 bulbs were planted in each of those sites, and a smaller number were planted in the grass bank outside Lighthouse.
Ian Savory, senior leader at Lighthouse, said “As a church we want to take part in activities which will provide some benefit for our local community. Hopefully when these bulbs flower in the Spring, they will provide a little colour and joy in everyone’s lives”
Lighthouse is also planning a hospitality Sunday on 7 November, and a festive choir concert in early December.
