Bovevagh Parish Church, in the village of Burnfoot between Dungiven and Limavady, will host a Festival of Flowers from Friday, May 29 to Sunday May 31.

The theme this year is ‘The Circle of Life’.

The Church is committed to healthy Church growth and it aims to grow out into the local community to share its faith in words and actions. Throughout the last weekend in May, it will glorify God for his goodness travelling through ‘The Circle of Life’, depicted through the display of Gods Word through beautiful floral arrangements, created by members of the Londonderry Floral Art Society.

The festival officially opens with a dedication on Friday, May 29 and the Church will be open to view the displays until 8pm that day.

The following day, Saturday, is a full schedule of entertainment as well as open viewing of the floral displays in the Church. The festival will be open from 10am to 8pm with entertainment provided in the Music Marquee from 11am to 4pm by local bands, Boveva Flute Band, Ardinariff Flute Band, Tullintrain Pipe Band, Drumrane Primary School choir and North West Gospel Choir.

On Sunday, the festival is open again from 2pm to 5pm, following this a special Praise Service will be held on Sunday evening at 7pm in the Church to celebrate and close the flower festival. Guest preacher, Rev Paul Whittaker and soloist, Mrs Jill Laird will be participating in the service.

A flower festival catering programme is available all weekend offering Morning coffee, lunches, afternoon tea and high tea. Coach parties and groups are very welcome, however, booking for groups is essential.
