In many churches members of the congregation are encouraged to cover the cost of flowers that displayed in church as a way of marking anniversaries or celebrations.
This is something that we used to do in Granton and whilst it is a good way to remember loved ones and events, it also makes providing flowers more affordable for the church.
Sandra Summers renews the flower displays in church every two weeks, but they are becoming increasingly expensive and the Kirk Session is looking into ways to help fund this.
We will be putting a list of dates next to the flower box for the next 3 months to trial if people would like to donate towards the flowers.
Anyone can donate – please speak to Sandra Summers or just place an envelope in the flower box. It costs between £10-£15 to fully change the two vases, but any donations would be appreciated.
