The event will run from 1.00pm to 4.30pm and will include: art workshops in a variety of styles and media (including calligraphy, design enlargement, drawing on board, line techniques and pastels) led by Hayley Bowen, John Gentry, Mark Lewis, Henry Shelton and Peter Webb; sessions showing and discussing use of visual multi-media meditations; viewing of the annual exhibition by the National Society of Painters, Sculptors & Printmakers (NSPSP); commission4mission and Oasis stalls; a Special General meeting to discuss proposed revised Charitable Objects for commission4mission; and a Service celebrating the Arts.

St Stephen Walbrook is a Wren church with a stone altar carved by Henry Moore andDSC00041 abstract kneelers designed by Patrick Heron. The church is one where we have several connections as we have exhibited there on two occasions, our secretary (Rev Jonathan Evens) has recently been licensed as Priest-in-Charge at the church, and our Chair, Peter Webb (who is also Chair of the NSPSP) has work in the current exhibition to be seen there. St Stephen Walbrook can be found at 39 Walbrook, London EC4N 8BN (from Bank tube station, take exit 8 and the church is a few yards ahead). Sermons by Jonathan Evens preached at St Stephen Walbrook can be heard on the website of the London Internet Church, which is based at the church.
