All Saints' Church at Stradbroke is being prepared for the annual flower festival, with the theme Colour, Mission and Priesthood.

The event marks the 40th anniversary of the ordination to the priesthood of its rector, the Rev David Streeter (pictured).

It runs from Saturday to Monday and will feature the seven colours of the rainbow and the seasons of the church's life, Stradbroke's community and activities and aspects of Mr Streeter's parish work, including the primary school, youth work, abseiling and bungee jumping and winning a county St George's Day award in 2007 for a tea party on top of the church tower.

Mr Streeter is leading a team of 50 for the event. He will also be making a large fruit cake and icing it with rainbow colours.

There will be an exhibition of photographs and news cuttings to illustrate his 40 years of ministry, and competitions. Tea and coffee will be on sale from 10am-6pm.

On Sunday, at 6.30pm, the benefice choir will lead a service of thanksgiving and rededication, and on Monday, at 7.30pm, there is a service of Holy Communion, with hymns and a sermon and music led by the Eye church choir.
