St Columba’s September Spring Fling
An equinox celebration for our community welcoming the return of spring
It is great to ‘wake up the worms’ and encourage them to turn the soil as we leave winter behind and plant our crops and our hopes.
The drummers will lead us in a dance as we acknowledge the passing of winter and look forward to the cycle of new life and hope.
We will gather in the church to the call of the drums and then move outside as they lead us around the garden.
· Bring food to share for a picnic brunch.
· Come and join this community celebration
