Parish Variety Event – 28 October 2023
Thank you to all who made our parish variety event so successful and enjoyable, from the wonderful variety of acts, volunteers with food, the raffle and setting out the hall, to those helping clear away at the end. The inclement weather didn’t dampen our spirits and it was wonderful to see so many taking part.
Proceeds raised from the raffle and donations (before expenses) came to £469.
Parish Flower Festival – 3 – 4 August 2023, St Augustine, Seaton
On Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th August 2023, we opened the doors of St Augustine Church to welcome visitors to our Parish Flower Festival. It was a joyful two days with beautiful displays donated and arranged by our talented and generous parishioners.
The two days gave an opportunity for visitors to come into the church, to pray, light a candle, listen to the organ recitals, or simply sit quietly to reflect and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
The inclement weather didn’t dampen our spirits! After a visit to the church, tea, coffee, home made cakes and cream teas were served in the presbytery garden enjoyed by parishioners, holiday makers and passers by. All supported by a wonderful bank of volunteers.
All funds raised were for the maintenance of our three churches and we are very grateful for all donations received, including the generous donations of flowers and greenery.
The festival could not have been so successful without the tireless efforts of our wonderful volunteers – our tea ladies and gentlemen, our welcomers, musicians and flower arrangers and also all those who helped to set up before and clear away after.
Here are some photos of the beautiful displays.
