March 2018

Art 4 Easter: This has evolved from a vision Chris Redman had about setting up an Art project for Easter during Holy Week (26th – 31st March 2018).  The idea is each church, who wishes to take part, will be given a bible passage and asked to depict the message in any format they wish ie painting, drawing, photograph, poster, stitch-work etc.  The size is approximately 18” x 24”.  The passage we have been given is               Mark 11: v 18.  All pieces of work need to be with Chris Redman by 21st March when one will be chosen and put on display in the old Oswald Bailey shop in the Quedam, the other pieces submitted will be put on display in the church.

There will be a Special Church Meeting on Monday 26th March to discuss and vote on whether Rev Hibbin is invited back for a 2nd preach.
