Cromer Methodist Church to host modern art exhibition
2018: One of the Britain’s most important collections of modern religious art, the Methodist Modern Art Collection, will be on display in Cromer this summer, coinciding with the town’s carnival.
This unique collection of art featuring biblical themes and narrative has toured the UK and abroad since its inception over 50 years ago. The management of the collection is deputed to a body of trustees, whose primary aim is to enable people to connect their faith to art, and also to encourage people outside the Church to consider the Christian message presented through the medium of art.
The collection will be on display at the Community Matters Cafe, Hall Road, Cromer and at the Methodist Church, West Street next door, from August 7 to 17. The regular visitors to the Community Matters Cafe will have a special preview and lunch on Monday August 6.
The exhibition will be complemented by art workshops and reflective sessions as well as traditional bible studies, all of which will be free and open to all, with no booking required. The church hopes that the Methodist Modern Art Collection will provide an opportunity for a whole range of conversations about faith, Jesus and the human condition.
