Say it with flowers! Please bring a flower to Chapel on Sunday 26th June and take part in our annual Flower Communion. This year, we hope to celebrate diversity and our involvement in London Pride with a rainbow display of flowers. We share our flowers to make one beautiful display, and from this service we take away a flower, given by another, symbolising our shared celebration of community. All are welcome and there will be a flower for anyone who has no flower to bring.

We invite you to experience receiving and giving music in a friendly and informal setting. Introduced by Rev Kate Dean.
