Faithworks... James, a letter forever
This year the circuit is taking the opportunity to explore the letter of James as a part of Bible Month through three creative workshops. With themes like 'living the faith', 'justice', 'evil speech', 'caring' and 'conflict' James opens the door to many and various creative responses:
Meditative colouring, poetry and prose, song writing, painting and drawing, sculpture and photography. The list is endless.
Our picture shows some creative work by our 'Talent on Tuesday' group at Bainbridge; this shows part of the banner they sent to our partner churches in Kenya.
The workshops are suitable for all; including you, your friends, family and neighbours. You can work individually or collaborate with others on a joint project, it will be what you make it to be.
You are welcome to all workshops and stay all day or just for a few minutes.
This is for all people, not just artists, and not just Christians. It will be a non-threatening place to discover more about the Christian faith.
Lewis Carroll is quoted "In the end... We only regret the chances we didn't take, the relationships we were afraid to have and the decisions we waited too long to make." Go on, give it a go.
Materials and equipment will be provided; drinks will be available. You are invited to bring your own lunch.
All workshops start at 10am and close at 4pm.
