Altar Frontal Dedication Service at Combroke Church

The Altar Frontal has been a design and make hand embroidery project by members of the Combroke Arts and Crafts Group. The design and coordination of the project has been led by Louise Greenway.

This is a unique and beautiful artwork and its dedication was an historic moment. The design symbolises the Four Seasons with the front and rear panels representing the seasons and reflecting the form of the four stained glass windows overlooking the south aisle.  Patterns from the floor tiles and organ pipes complete the setting. The two side panels incoporate stunning 'leaf sunburst' designs that record the process and people who made it happen.  

Everyone in the village was invited to attend the Service and afterwards for Celebratory Refreshments at the Village Hall.  It was a glorious and inspirational  event.  THANK YOU to everyone involved in creating this wonderful artwork with special mention to Jo Price and Louise Greenway.

History note: the dedication and first public display of the Altar Frontal falls in the year in which we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the completion of the rebuilding of the Church in 1867.

Seven Minute Stories
One of Combrook's two bookgroups has been involved in an exciting initiative set up by the West Midlands Readers' Network. The group was one of six reading groups in the West Midlands selected to work with an author; each to produce a short story. Combrook was fortunate to be paired with William Gallagher. William put together a brilliant story entitled ' The Book Groups '.
