Cookham Rise Methodist Church was a mass of flowers over the weekend of 15 to 18 July for the Celebration in Flowers Festival to celebrate the centenary of the building of the church in Cookham Rise.  The previous Methodist Church was in Cookham Village, which now houses the Stanley Spencer Gallery. Part of the altar display had a painting which had been donated by the Spencer Gallery to the Methodist Church to commemorate the Centenary.  Dick Hurley the Chairman of the Spencer Gallery had given the limited edition print of one of Spencer's Christ in the Wilderness series, 'Rising from Sleep in the Morning' (1940). 

There were twenty different arrangements in all and the smell filled the church. With the music playing in the background it was a very tranquil place to visit.  Tea and home made cakes were available. It all made the visit an extremely pleasant one.
