Details of the activities for 2017 have been published.
Cathedral Exhibition on Angels
We kick the year by hosting the Cathedral Exhibitions of Textile Art – Angels exhibition. The Deo Gloria funded exhibition will be with us in January. This display gives a series of impressions about angles as link between this world and another dimension. It combines the familiar comfortable Christmas story, with the unfamiliar and uncomfortable realm that exists beyond our understanding.
LENT: Stations of the Cross & Sunday Evening Preachments
Throughout Lent we will mount Nigel Robert Pugh’s Exhibition of paintings of the Stations of the Cross. On Sunday evenings at 6pm we will look at the images and what message we can draw out for today, with the help of visiting Preachers.
