Sponsor a Flower Arrangement!

You have the opportunity to raise money for our Flower Festival by giving fifty pounds (or more) for a pedestal arrangement for any Sunday except in Lent. This could be to celebrate or commemorate a person or event. The cost of materials would be deducted from the donation and the remainder placed in the Festival fund. This newssheet would state for example “Mr & Mrs A sponsor the arrangement on the left (of the altar) to celebrate their wedding anniversary and Mrs X sponsors the one on the right in memory of her mother.” These sponsors would also be named in the official programme. For more information, please speak to Brenda Gande, Joyce Reade or Jackie Surridge.

On Sunday 9 September St. Hildeburgh's held the annual Lifeboat Service for the crews and supporters of the Hoylake and West Kirby Lifeboats. The Deputy Mayor of Wirral attended and the preacher was our Vicar and Lifeboat Chaplain, Rev'd Paul Rossiter. The service was followed by a Barbecue in the grounds of the Vicarage ... see below the Vicar flipping burgers!

Heritage Open Day

On Saturday 8 September St. Hildeburgh's was open all day as part of Wirral's Heritage celebrations. There were guided tours, refreshments and a quiz for young people. It was wonderful to welcome so many new people into church and make many new friends!
