Easter Gardens 2013 W KIrby


undefinedSt Michael's church in Newton, West Kirby, Wirral, is inviting the local community to get involved in an Easter Gardens project. The idea is that residents near the church make floral displays in their gardens to represents aspects of Holy Week inncluding Palm Sunday, the Last Supper, the Empty Tomb, Good Friday, the Garden of Gethsemane, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection.

The displays will be in front and side gardens, easily seen from the public pavements. They will be along a route which starts and finishes at the church (CH48 6EP) in Queensbury , including Ennisdale Drive, Wirral Mount, and Kingsbury.

The event will take place on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday (31 March and 1 April) is part of the parish’s Growth Action Plan (GAP).

The Easter Gardens project is about engaging with the community through an all-ages family event. It will be a larger version of last year’s similar project. Flowers and various pieces of art and sculpture will feature. 

A programme will be available from the church, explaining the route and the themes of each display.

PICTURED are displays from last year's gardens event - (above) Sunday Club with their garden 'Jesus Best Friend Ever', and (below) a representation of the Last Supper.

St Michael's church will be open from 2pm - 4.30 pm on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. Visitors to the church can enjoy a cup of tea and selection of cakes. There will be a moprning  workshop where visitors can admire the artwork which local children create each Good Friday. Admission and parking is free.

Parishioner and PCC member Jeanette Appleton said: “Everyone enjoyed this event in 2012. This year it will be bigger and better. And we hope the various tableaux will inspire people to think about the tremendous good news of Easter.”
