We're doing something a little different this Lent and Easter season, and would love to have your artistic involvement and participation.
We've set up a special area on one side of the church near the blackboards, and want to fill it with art - either art in the making, art in motion, stationary art, or whatever else you may be inspired to do based on our weekly themes.
The overall idea is to enter into the story of Jesus' journey to the cross each week as a whole community, and we're hoping to have artists in motion and creating during the Sunday service in our Lent space, or if that's too much pressure, bringing a piece to install that will invite the congregation to participate and meditate, and engage with Christ in a new way.
Just think of it like an extended Stations of the Cross for the entire season of Lent as we journey together towards Easter - we may also set up a station every week and incorporate it into our collective worship time.
If you have any ideas, big or small, or want to sign up for one of the weekly themes below, please let us know and we can get creating and creative! Also, if you know of any artistic folk or friends who would love to participate, spread the word!
