Holy Trinity Prayer Lawn

Anyone from the community are invited to”plant” a knitted flower in the designated area of the Holy Trinity church garden for themselves, family or friends. The blooms are then included in our prayer list.

The Knit and Natter group at Holy Trinity need your help. The Prayer Lawn has been so successful we are running out of flowers. If anyone can knit or crochet a few they will be very gratefully received, either leave them in the box by the lawn or post through the letterbox of Block B Ocean Park. Thank you
