ArtServe long service awards recognise the often unsung contribution of anyone who has employed their creative skills in worship over a substantial period.
The award comes in the form of a specially designed certificate. There is a silver certificate for service of 25 years or more, and a gold certificate for those who have served the church for at least 40 years. The actual certificate features an embossed medallion - either silver or gold as appropriate.
Our awards are intended to be presented via the local church to anyone who has served the church through the arts in any capacity, whether through music, dance & drama, visual arts, or creative writing. They may have served more than one church and they may have served in more than one capacity.
Certificates are inscribed by our own calligrapher and cost £15.00 each.
To apply for either certificate please provide the following information for each certificate required, making sure you give the exact words to be inscribed:
- Type of certificate required - silver or gold
- Name of recipient
- Position(s) held
- Number of years of service
- Name of the person who will present the certificate
- Exact date of presentation
- Name and full address of the person to whom the certificate should be sent
- Contact telephone number and email address.
Please submit your application at least three weeks prior to the presentation date. If a certificate is required more urgently than this, please contact us by email or phone 07808 162827 before applying.
