Holy Week – Faith in Art
Monday, 6th April @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£30
Our day together will use the work of visual artists to explore the events of Holy Week. Through times of reflection and quiet, we will allow what we see to deepen our spiritual journey. This day retreat is contemplative, but also allows opportunity for learning and discussion about the ways art can enrich our faith.
Rev Graham Sparkes is a Baptist minister who currently serves as President of Luther King House in Manchester, an ecumenical partnership for theological education.
