Middleton in Teesdale Methodist chapel hosted a creative workshop on the topic of Colossians, following on from the 'Bible Month' initiative championed by the Methodist church. Led by Rev. Alan Coustick and assisted by Kevin Pellatt 22 people came along over two days and one evening, and they created all manner of artwork inspired by Paul's letter.
Common themes emerged such as being rooted and growing in Christ, clothing ourselves in Love and Jesus being the visible image of the invisible God. Songs were written, images created using collage, paint and camera and a sculpture fashioned out of material and a fallen branch.
The workshop format allowed people to drop in for as long as they wanted and to engage in whatever art form they fancied. There were refreshments available throughout the day and there was space and time to think and talk through the issues raised in the epistle, many of which are still relevant today.
Middleton chapel building has been developed over the last few years and as 'The Pathway' has become an important community hub, hosting many events and activities; you can read about them on their website. http://www.thepathway.org.uk/
