Flower Festival at St Peter’s Church

On Sunday 11th July, St Peter’s Church will look stunning! There is a wedding the day before and the families have very kindly offered to allow the flowers to stay in Church for visitors to enjoy, with donations very much-appreciated, as a means of raising very much-needed funds!

We are delighted by this offer, as the flower arrangements are expected to be very special and a treat to enjoy, so come to the service or visit anytime after 11.30am – 5.30pm to enjoy this unique Festival of Flowers.

You could follow your visit with a Cream Tea up at the Community Hall afterwards, between 3pm – 5pm. It will be lovely to see you!

Please note: Current guidelines for COVID-19 apply

Media makers

Part of our Digital Persona project

You’re invited to join us on Saturday 26th June 1:30-3:30pm for a special ‘Media Maker’ event taking place at St. Peter’s Church. 

Supported by our new Digital Persona project that will see William Hanbury have his very own Instagram platform, Media Makers, will see young people carry out interviews, create short films, generate digital content and engage with local residents to capture what they love about St. Peter’s Church! 

There will also be lots of other activities including arts & crafts, a special William Hanbury ‘Talk & Tour’, plant & book sale, competitions and the opportunity to have a nice cuppa. 

We would like to see as many local residents as possible at the event, and look forward to seeing you all there. 

Frances Freer our lead digital curator had this to say about the event….. 

‘As the lead on this project, I’m very excited about sharing William Hanbury’s inspiring life, his vision and his legacy with as many people as possible. This exceptional figure helped to shape the parish as we know it today and he is deserving of an important spot within our local history. There’s no better way to learn about the life of this fascinating vicar of St. Peter’s than by visiting Church Langton church and join our Media Maker event, there will be a number of engaging Hanbury-inspired activities for people of all ages to enjoy.

So please, come and join the fun!’
