The church are commemorating their 50th anniversary since the re-dedication of the church, after a fire in 1967. There will be various professionally flower arrangements around the church and the site, that will depict stories of the angels! Did you know? St Michael is also known as St Michael the Archangel! Sutton Spa’s are one of the main sponsors of the Festival of Flowers.
The festival is start on the Saturday at 10 AM until 5 PM and again on the Sunday, from 2 PM until 5 PM. The church will be holding their Sunday service, but with a VERY unique twist! Sutton Spas have hired a RotoSpa to the church in order for them to carry out a number of baptisms within the tub itself! The service is open to the public and it is a great opportunity for people to get to know the local area and the church itself, as well as Sutton Spas as a company!
Reverend Cath Walker and Reverend Gary Birchall will be on site all weekend to welcome people! Reverend Birchall and the Bishop of Birmingham, Right Reverend David Urquart will be carrying out the baptisms themselves.
Karl, our Technical Director explains “Gary approached us with this wonderful, out-there idea and there was no hesitation that I wanted to help the church out!”. He continued, “…we are always looking for ways to help the community. I wanted to repay Reverend Birchall and couldn’t think of a more unique way to help him”.
Refreshments & cakes will be available all day! We hope to see you all there – come and say hello! Don’t forget to take pictures of all of the wonderful arrangements & share them on our social media sites!
