On 20th October nearly 30 artists and creatives gathered at St George’s Church for a morning exploring how arts and creativity can enhance worship, support social justice initiatives and increase community flourishing.
The morning began with creative worship including: ‘Zumba for Body and Soul’ with Pineapple Dance teacher Kirsty Fuller; a powerful spoken word piece by actor and poet Sarah Amankwah; and praying with acrylic abstract art with community artist Jo Colwill. This was followed by lively Open Space discussions, a tour of local estates and an introduction to the Power Station development by Alex Baker and concluded with a delicious lunch at CoffeeWorks in Circus West. The morning was curated by our Pioneer Minister in the Arts, Rev Betsy Blatchley. Further events are planned - for more information please email Betsy or follow her on twitter @9ElmsArtsRev or like our Facebook Page www.facebook.com/nineelmsartsministry
