Easter Crosses Festival

The Methodist Church invites organisations within the village to contribute to their Easter Crosses Festival. You can create a cross made out of whatever materials you wish, but no more than 152cm high. Alternatively, why not create a Garden of Gethsemane (no more than 46cm x 46cm)?

The crosses (or gardens) will be displayed from Good Friday through to the evening service on Easter Sunday (29th to 31st March) from 10am to 5pm. It would be marvellous to have someone from your organisation at the Sunday evening service - you could collect your cross or garden immediately afterwards.
