School Art in Heaven project

We have had two school visits in the church, showing them our special works of art including Carolyn’s murals, our sculptures and our various William Morris stained-glass windows. A third is coming next Wednesday 27th and a fourth Friday 29th. They will take part in the “Art in Heaven” competition to paint scenes in heaven which finishes just after Easter. Their paintings will be on display here for several days during May and we can vote for the best one.
