In full bloom
Purples, yellows, blues and greens filled the St Augustine Anglican Church as 25 eye-catching floral arrangements, designed by renowned floral arranger David Yearwood and a team of 17 florists, were mounted throughout the church for the show held under the theme Through The Years.
Ordene Elcock, secretary of the anniversary activities organising committee, said the activity was the fundraising element of a year of activities to mark the church’s 150th anniversary.
Lilies, roses and anthuriums captivated patrons who visited, and Elcock said the funds raised would be used to carry out work at the church.
“We need to do some repairs, replace some pews and either refurbish or replace the church organ,” said Elcock.
“We have come through some hard times and are trying to build up again, not just the physical structure of the church but the membership. To get people more committed to the church and to serving God,” Elcock added as she reflected on the church’s development and its path forward.
She said the main need of the church is to attract more young people.
“We have some and we are trying to work with them to get them to be committed too,” she said, while noting the general membership has been on the increase in recent times.
The floral show ended last Sunday. (LK)
