Throughout the ages flowers have been used in Christian churches as symbolic representation with sacred significance.
They are in themselves an offering of great beauty- and are used to show thanks and reverence to God for his wonderful creation.
In early times when few people could read or write, flowers were used to symbolise different aspects of Christian beliefs.
For example the Lily symbolised purity and the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Red rose depicted martyrdom whilst the White rose symbolised purity and Violets - humility.
Here in St MacNissi’s church Randalstown we presently have two full time floral arrangers.
We are fortunate to be able to call on the expertise and dedication of four more very able flower arrangers at the busy periods of Easter and Christmas which lessens the load and also creates an atmosphere of friendship and togetherness.
However, we should like to implement a more structured floral group and in order to do so would like to extend an invitation to anyone who would like to become involved in this very rewarding and satisfying contribution to our church community.
