Flower festival 2024


Introduction to this year’s theme : Parables of Jesus                  Each year our Flower Festival takes a theme connected with the Bible and the

Christian faith. This year’s theme is Parables of Jesus. A parable is a tale about a

simple, common subject to illustrate a more profound, valuable moral lesson. The

source definition of the word ‘parable’ means a placement ‘side by side’ for the

purpose of comparison.

Parables are a crucial method by which Jesus taught the people. He would often

simplify the profound spiritual truths he needed to share in the form of relatable

stories from everyday life. He told stories about lost sheep, burning lamps,

growing crops, troublesome weeds, baking bread, buried treasure, vineyards,

weddings, coins, fishermen, farmers and tax collectors — to name but a few!

So, how might you depict a parable in flowers...? It’s not as easy as it sounds - as

this year’s team of arrangers will testify! However, the stories do provide immense

scope for the imagination. And what is reassuring, for any flower arranger, is that

they start with the best possible raw materials. As Jesus himself said: Not even

Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. (Matthew 6.29)

All Saints’ Flower Festival 2024: Parables of Jesus runs from Saturday 25th May

to Monday 27th May, incorporating a festival service on Trinity Sunday 26th May at
