A FLOWER Festival is being held this week to celebrate the centenary of Firth Park Methodist Church.

Visitors to the church in Stubbin Lane are being greeted by displays on the theme of Past, Present, Future, an exhibition of art by students of Longley College and entries in a young people’s art competition.

Congregation member Sue Spencer said: “The church has been a constant in the area which has changed so much, from fields to suburbs, but also the demographic. We were trying to tell that story in flowers.”

A special service featured three former ministers, Jane Sharpe, Tony Malcolm and Derek Hinchliffe.

The exhibition ends tomorrow (Friday).
