Flower Festival & Arts & Crafts Exhibition 2018 - It was lovely to see our church so beautifully decorated and to see the wealth of talent that we have in our congregation, over the weekend of 9th and 10th June when we had our Flower Festival and Arts and Crafts Exhibition.
Our displays based on the theme of ‘Simple Pleasures’ included fishing, reading, drama, singing for pleasure, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, cross-stitch, quilting, felting, gardening, photography, scouting, painting, sketching and of course flower arranging. In the hall, the Residents Association put on displays on the history of Aylestone and Aylestone Park, the Dance School also put on a display. In addition, Nativity had a display to show the life and activities of the church. The catering team fed our visitors with sandwiches and homemade cakes.
Christmas 2017 - Just before the beginning of Advent church members met at Nativity to once again transform our church into something special for the Christmas season. The theme chosen was ‘Christmas Carols’.
The windows and church porch, together with a shelf placed on the centre pews, took on a very different look as shepherds, angels, Nativity scenes and banners appeared.
Our big Christmas tree and all its trimmings came out from its hiding place in the church, the Memory Corner became a village scene from Christmas past and once again the altar was turned round for all to see our Nativity tableau. All this made our church a very special place to be in and many people were able to enjoy it.
