16/17/18 September – Flitton Bible Yarns Exhibition
Update from Margaret
The Knitted Bible Exhibition was amazing – even more effective than I had expected. It was lovely to see so many people. A huge thank you to all helpers, cake bakers, craft makers, jam makers etc. Everyone who came said how impressed they were with the displays and how nice our church looked. It took 2 days to put up and then a morning to pack it all away again but it was worth it.
Think your knowledge of the Bible is a bit woolly?
Then come and discover stories of the Bible through an extraordinary and beautiful exhibition of hand knitted scenes.
Can you guess which story our photo is depicting?
Friday 16, Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September at Flitton Church from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Entry is free but we welcome donations.
There will be cream teas and cakes served in the Church.
If you would like to help by sponsoring a particular scene, please contact Jo Holt firstname.lastname@example.org . Sponsorship is £10 per scene and there is a good choice for you from the Garden of Eden and Old Testament stories to Christmas and Easter.
It will be a wonderful weekend – perfect for children, families and everyone.

Saturday 10 September – Historic Churches Bike ‘n Hike
Update from Margaret
I managed to visit the 15 churches and cycle a marathon. It was quite subdued but I’m convinced that The Queen would have approved of the event and the people who took part. Thanks to everyone who sponsored me. I raised £640 which is a great total.
Bike ‘n Hike is the main annual fundraising event for the Beds & Herts Historic Churches Trust and makes for a great day out.
Each church involved keeps half of the funds raised by its supporters, while the remainder plus gift aid goes to the Trust to be awarded as grants to help maintain these historic buildings.
Margaret Butt will be cycling a marathon for Flitton Church and hopefully visiting 15 churches. If you would like to sponsor Margaret please contact her on email@example.com. Last year, Margaret raised £600 and is hoping to match that or even better it this year.
Duncan Robb is taking part for Pulloxhill Church. If you would like to sponsor Duncan , please contact him on 07957 488 456 or firstname.lastname@example.org
