Methinks I see a heav’nly host

27 June 2014

A CHURCH in Watton, in the diocese of St Albans, has been full of images of angels - more than 200 of them. Families and groups have created them from paper, clay, helium balloons, and a variety of other materials. They joined the rest of Watton's heavenly host.

St Mary and St Andrew, in Watton at Stone, has a resident population of angels already: eight wooden roof angels, three stone cherubim, and 35 in the stained-glass windows. During their recent fête, visitors followed the free angelic trail, and admired both the old and new craftsmanship. And classes of local schoolchildren came to visit the church and to vote for the best angel.

Now the Priest-in-Charge, the Revd Jenny Gray, has plans to harness the wealth of local talent again next year with a Noah's Ark trail.
