We knitted over 100 angels and placed them out and about in the local community this Christmas. Part of the #xmasangels initiative bringing the message of God's love and light into our community. We received one message saying how finding an angel had made someone's day and a picture of it is on top of her tree!

During April 2017 we hosted One Friday, an art exhibition with images by Jenny Hawkes portraying the events of one particular Friday - Jesus' final journey to the cross. Here are some of the comments from visitors to the exhibition:
Sitting in front of each picture after a walk around allowed time to think of my own response.
The pictures are a really powerful way of telling the Easter story up to Good Friday. I loved the style of painting.
Jenny Hawkes' reflections are inspirational and beautifully reflect the paintings, which also leave space for our own thoughts and meditation.
Beause He lives, I can face tomorrow. Thank you for time to reflect. Thank you Jesus that you are the light of the world. I thought the art work was truly inspired.
Good to see these traditional images in a new way and be challenged to follow the journey again. Thank you.
Wonderful exhibition. So much detail. I feel so uplifted. The events of Easter brought to life.
Powerful, striking picture - reflect the messages of our faith. The paintings lead to the fture of faith, hope and love following Our Lord's resurrection.
