Blooming Church 2019

Blooming Church – Flourishing

One of the highlights on the St David’s Cathedral calendar is the Blooming Church floral festival and in 2019 it will take place on the Hobart Regatta weekend from Friday 8 – Sunday 10 February.

This event brings local residents and visitors into our glorious heritage cathedral to see the splendour of a multitude of floral displays. It is truly a community event with contributions to the spectacle from Anglican parishes, schools and organisations, representatives from other denominations and a range of community groups.

It is the combination of the contributions of so many that transform the Cathedral into a mass of floral beauty.

The theme for the 2019 Blooming Church is Flourishing; it is what God wants for humanity.

We were created to flourish. Jesus came that we may have life and have it in abundance; after last year’s focus on deep roots now it’s time to flourish!!

The organising committee is inviting participants to register for Blooming Church 2019 by contacting the Cathedral Office on 03 6234 4900 or email. Past participants should receive their individual invitations to participate in October, either by post or email. Past and new participants are warmly welcomed to be involved.

Due to the success of the beginner’s Botanical Art Workshop held this year, we will be offering it again in 2019 on Saturday 19 – Sunday 20 January. This workshop is designed for those who would like to develop their skills in drawing with a floral focus, and it will be led by Jean Henley of the well-known Botaniko botanical art group. No previous experience or artistic skill is necessary to participate in this workshop, but as places are limited, if you wish to participate please contact Di Worth on 0455 666 289 or The cost of the workshop is $160 excluding GST.

The Friends of St David’s are holding a Car Boot Sale on Saturday 20 October in the Cathedral carpark to help raise funds to run next year’s festival. If you have items that you wish to sell out of your car boot, you can book your place by contacting the Cathedral Office on 03 6234 4900 or email. The cost is $20 for one carpark space, $30 for two. We would value your support.

The Blooming Church committee encourages Anglican parishes, other churches, organisations, and interested groups to sign up and be a part of Blooming Church 2019 – Flourishing. It is sure to be another great community event.
