This weekend we were at the Caldicot Flower Festival held within Caldicot Methodist Church.
It was a truly splendiferous Festival of colourful flowers.
I sat in quiet reflection beside the Fountain of Life; a perpetual flow of cascading water – extremely therapeutic and restful.
All the flowers had been specially shipped in from Amsterdam – and the church organisers must be praised and commended for all the hard work that went into creatively presenting all the flowers so artistically.
All the donations received from visitors to the Flower Festival will be shared between Foodbank and Prospects.
The Festival was a magnificent example of what Methodist Churches can do by way of ‘outreaching’ to the local community.
Yesterday, we also managed a couple of hours at Caldicot Castle – courtesy of a warm sunny afternoon.
Today, before returning home, we went to the Church Harvest Festival Service led by the Church Minister, Rev Preben Andersen.
The Harvest Festival was peaceful and inspirational – Preben is always filled by the Holy Spirit’
We are looking forward to returning to Caldicot on Saturday 11th October to attend a charity concert at the Methodist Church in aid of Foodbank and Prospects.
