We are currently exploring as a church whether Art can be used as a means of engaging our community. We are very fortunate to have at least one talented Artist as a Church Member.

Mary Dewey is a sculptress and in many respects our ‘Artist in Residence’. Mary runs our Art Class. She has also developed the Joshua Gallery near her home where she runs Half Day Retreats. She exhibits her art in a local coffee shop and takes commissions.

The profile of art in the church is growing. We are looking for ways to use art in the cause of mission and are hoping that we can see a way forward to be able to release Mary’s talent as another avenue of ministry in the local area.

Art Class meets every Wednesday in the lower hall from 7:30pm and cost £3 per evening.

This is a teaching course that can guide you and help you to find out what you can do (even if you think it is nothing). You will learn how to develop your own work and ideas into a design that can be transferred into a variety of materials that would be suitable. This art class is suitable for all, those who are just beginning, those who would like to develop their skills, as well as for more experienced artists, in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

People are very friendly and welcoming, with the occasional outings to galleries, or for a meal.

Please email Mary Dewey via the Church Office for more information.
