A flower festival is part of a three week programme of events at All Saints Church in Dedworth Road.
The church is hosting the ‘Dare to be Dedworth’ festival which runs until Sunday, October 25.
A flower festival started on Saturday and will be on display until Saturday, October 17.
The displays by flower arrangers from the church are based around the 66 books of the bible.
Reverend Louise Brown came up with the idea for the festival. She said: “Dedworth is such a great community, so I decided we should have our own festival.
“It is to celebrate our community.”
Events have either been free or with a suggested contribution of up to £5.
A highlight so far was a comedy set by Paul Kerensa, who has written for hit television shows Miranda and Not Going Out.
On Friday there is a show from poet Clare Pollard from 7.30pm at the church.
Rev Louise said Friday morning live music sessions at the church’s Running Man Cafe have also been a hit with residents.
She added: “The theme is Dare to be Dedworth.
“We need to dare to celebrate more, dare to be more generous, dare to laugh more and dare to be ourselves more.”
“In this day and age we need each other more than ever.
“The festival is about bringing people together to experience something different to bring a great community in Dedworth.”
