The 10am services on Sunday 28 February and 7 March are CANCELLED

10am services

will be followed by our Lenten series “The Journey of the Maker”:
As Christ at the Last Supper changed the meaning of the elements of bread and wine,

so the artist transforms glass, pigment, fabric and metal into something new and sacred.

Christ used the fire of the Holy Spirit. The artist uses the fire of imagination.

The creative process is a journey into the heart of making, and the Maker.

Join us in our explorations of the Maker’s art.

Follow the footsteps of the artist on their journey of transformation.

See how new meaning is given to raw materials in the creation of religious art.
