Banner ministry

Why banners?  Because banners communicate through our hands the love we have in sharing our God given gift, with all who can receive a message through them from our lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

The banner ministry was started in 1995 when St Wins was blessed with the arrival of the new minister and his wife and two sons, Don, Jane, John and Paul Scrooby.  We had one banner which had been made a few years previously and it was used by the church when it was needed to play any particular part e.g. On the odd march, otherwise it hung in the church, with the three others that had been made for the hall.

Jane decided that it would be a very good idea to get the ladies together and see what reaction there would be to a banner ministry.  The response was very good and two groups were started, the Saturday ladies and the Wednesday ladies.  Jane then proceeded to teach them all how to do the banners, and I must say a very good teacher indeed, she also managed to delegate the leading of the banner group very subtly, then quietly slipped out of the picture, but all the beautiful banners that are seen in St. Wins are due to the vision of this lovely lady.  Thank you Jane!”
