During the weekend 9th to 11th November, our Church held a Festival of Peace, commemorating 100 years since the end of World War I.

This community event was opened on Friday 9 November at 10.30am by Cllr David Cartwright, the Deputy Mayor of Bromley.  Refreshments were available and music was provided by Langley Park Boys School.  The church was open all weekend with floral displays, photographs of West Wickham from the period, poems and readings by The Matchbox Theatre, as well as opportunities for people to have quiet moments of reflection.  To view the collection of readings by the Matchbox Theatre and others click here.  To view photographs of the flower arrangements with their descriptions and details of the flower arrangers please click here
