After 10 years of successful activity commission4mission is closing down from the end of March 2020, as its members can no longer sustain the organisation in its current form. See the message from our Chairman in our News section for more information.

commission4mission has held exhibitions at All Hallows by the Tower, Chelmsford Cathedral, Coventry Cathedral, Norwich Cathedral, Methodist Central Hall Westminster, St Martin-in-the-Fields, St Stephen Walbrook, and The Strand Gallery, among many other locations. We have undertaken many commissions, which have raised funds for charity. We have worked with partners to create several projects and resources, including ‘Run With The Fire’ for the 2012 Olympic year.

In the past 12 months, we have exhibited at Coventry Cathedral during Lent with an exhibition entitled ‘Reconciliation’, a mix of abstract and representational imagery utilising ceramics, collage, digital illustration, drawing, painting, photography and sculpture. Contemporary issues addressed included conflicts in the Middle East and plastic pollution. We have also held our third Creative Retreat with the Othona Community at Bradwell-on-Sea.

In the Autumn we returned to All Hallows by the Tower with another varied and evocative exhibition entitled ‘Creation’, that then moved to Holy Trinity Sloane Square. 

We have undertaken commissions churches including All Saints Goodmayes, All Saints Hutton, Christ Church Thames View, St Edmund’s Tyseley, St  Margaret of Antioch Ilford, St Paul’s Goodmayes, among others.  News and information about our commissions can be found at our ‘Commissions’ page.  All commission4mission artists and their portfolios can be seen on the ‘Artists‘ page.

commission4mission (c4m) was formed to help revive and encourage the practice of commissioning and placing works of contemporary art in churches and other public places.  To enable this, we have a growing pool of professional artist members working in a variety of media and styles. Through art, we support churches in their ongoing mission, and also charities, as each year part of the proceeds from commissions is donated.
