Lockdown Gallery

It makes sense that a creative God would create creative people in his image. And not to be held back by lockdown, here are a range of creative expressions of praise and thanks from members of All Saints Church

Here are some of our children's amazing creations

Eyes Fixed on Jesus
I painted this during the first online service. I feel it speaks of walking with my eyes fixed on Jesus, even if everything around me seems unclear, His light is shining on me and I am peaceful; I will not be overwhelmed. By Fliss.

It’s called ‘Mary Revealed’ and has significance for me as I’ve done two other versions in the past of this one and they have been covered with Ivy. It has made me wonder about how this experience of the pandemic has revealed to us what is it essential in our life and where there is beauty in the simplicity of what surrounds us. Luke 2:35. Julie Burnett-Kirk.

Psalm 23: 1 to 3, ''The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.'' By Dave S.

 

My Teddy

Rediscovered rather than created during lockdown, Carol says, "I found this when sorting out. He was given to me when I was born and I was rushed to children’s hospital where I stayed for 4 weeks fighting to live. God had his hand on me then and still does today."

   ‘God made the stars to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good’ By Chris H.
 

 

Blank Canvas

Painting by Dawn, "I've a sense of a new beginning and a blank canvas. Searching for what God wants me to add in."

  "This is a painting of the fox that came to listen to a youth Bible study. She only has one eye so is vulnerable and cared for by all of the neighbours. A beautiful example of God's plan for humans to work together and look after His beautiful creations and the unity and joy that brings." By Fliss.
  "I have spent many hours walking the beaches close to our home and have taken many photos of the sea. On the beach is one of the places I feel the strongest presence of God. I took a few photos on Climping beach as I was struck by the beauty of the forms that have emerged since the devastation hit it earlier in the year. I sensed God saying He brings beauty out of the chaos. His word stands forever and He makes all things new." Photographs by Jackie.

Lockdown Teddies Part 2

"This was my first teddy and we are both now 64 years old!. She (yes she) was given to me as a baby and reminds me of God's constancy. As a baby I had meningitis and it was serious enough that my mum told me later that prayers were said for me in the local churches. God was watching over me then and now." By Trevor F.
