St Luke’s Flower Festival celebrates regeneration and renewal.
The three day “New Life” floral event at St Luke’s Parish Church, Formby, on April 16-18 will put Winter firmly behind us.
A magnificent display of flowers will provide a spectacle well worth coming to see.
The event is raising money for ‘New Life’ in Africa, South America and in Formby.
Sponsors are invited to support this event – their names will be prominently displayed as part of the spectacle, included in the official programme and publicity.

Churches in the news
Under the headline ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ a national newspaper told how Canon David Parrott blessed the laptops, iPhones and Blackberrys of his congregation in the City of London on Plough Sunday.
“I came up with the idea of blessing not the village plough but the tools of the trade in the City of London”, he said.
