We started our planning in 2018. Jason Kennedy, the Diocesan Missioner, came and preached on Advent Sunday, 2 December, and then led a session to help us plan. His paperwork is here – DarleyAbbeyAnniversaryDiscussion
The celebrations started with an organ recital “Bach and Baroque” on Saturday 16 March when Nigel Allcoat came and gave a marvellous performance. These photos are by Nigel Tissington.
This artwork, “Fact and Fabrication, made by Spiral Arts, based on a weaving loom, was on display in church during the first fortnight of April. We also had some work from Walter Evans School, and a good number of visitors.
There are lots of things planned for the last two weekends of June. The posters are on the Forthcoming Events tab, and you can download the leaflet here:
The following Saturday we are having an Allestree Churches Together Prayer Walk round other local churches – come, walk, and pray.
