Exciting new scheme! Creative Christ Church


From October this year we will be exhibiting artwork around the church buildings mainly on the Foyer walls and corridors. Art work can be used as a witness to all the Church Centre users to describe and testify to the Glory of God working in our lives. Every three/ four months there will be a theme and/or suggestions of media including things like ‘Awesome nature’, ‘Forgiveness’, creative writing, watercolours, textiles …the work can be submitted by the congregation and later probably by other hall users too and Christ Church school children. The change-over time will be near or in half term holidays.

If there are lots of entries, a small team will select what we think is appropriate and if there are very hard choices we can show works for 6 weeks and swap over. It is something that God laid on my heart a few years ago now and as many people learn visually, I believe we should use our creativity to reach out to those who pass by.

You can be any age to submit work, it will need to be either A4 or A3 in size only 2d work at this stage and it would be very helpful to have one or two sentences of explanation to go alongside the work (Please email this to office@christchurchpurley.org.uk) approx. 40 words.

If you would like to be on the team with me choosing, preparing and hanging the work please get in touch. I would like to have an Instagram page to go with it too if there is anyone who fancies that job.

The first deadline for submissions is Saturday 28th September 2019.

Theme: ‘New Beginnings’ suggested media - any paints.

Named Artwork can be dropped at Kate’s house during the week before the deadline or we can arrange collection at church if necessary.
I’m looking forward to seeing your creativity!
God Bless and inspire you, Kate Buckley
