A social craft evening at All Saints North Baddesley drew 12 people together to explore their creativity, new crafts and community.
Pyrography (wood burning), beading and painting on pottery were among the activities on offer in in All Saints Church Tuesday 23 July, one of the hottest nights of the year. The Adult craft sessions have grown out of the successful craft club for primary age children, and the commitment to community building of our Lay Minister Sally Kerson.
The craft evenings provide a local community and social activity that gathers people together who have similar interests. Craft seems to be popular thing at the moment, because it’s something that’s social, but not sport or alcohol related.Sally Kerson, Lay Minister (LLM) @acnbchurch
At church we are very aware that all of us ‘have a bit of creativity in us’ Our interpretation is that comes from God who wants us to be creative in our stewardship of the earth. Our culture tends to insulate us from creating real things – and creating beautiful self-made things speaks to deep needs in our souls.
