The dull grey figure lies prostrate. He has given up the fight to live and is slowly sinking into the arms of death – hopefully to an oblivion that will free him from disease and pain, from the lethargy that has crept into his life and heart and taken away his energy and will to live, even the little power it would take to open his eyes.
Saturday 26 September 2015 from 9.30 am - 4.45 pm

"He doth us feed"
A celebration of harvest
There is nothing quite so enjoyable as a busy church! An exhibition of work by local artists will welcome visitors and preparations will be under way for Sunday’s Harvest Festival.
Morning sessions will inspire participants with a celebration of John Rutter’s beautiful seasonal choral pieces including For the beauty of the earth, All things bright and beautiful and The Lord bless you and keep you. There will be opportunities to play the organ and to explore a famous Yorkshire spa town.
The programme includes workshops led by Marilynne J R Davies and the Revd John Campbell and an organ recital by Dorothy Maxwell.
One day events across the country are part of what ArtServe does – a way of encouraging people from different regions to come together, share ideas and experiences, and experience creativity as a natural part of worship.
We have organised or co-organised successful events as far afield as Bristol and Thetford, Chislehurst and Evesham, Sketty (near Swansea) and Diss. We hope to be running more events in other areas (as well as returning to repeat some successes) over the next couple of years.
