Advent - Christmas Art Exhibition

26 November to 22 December 2020
In Pilgrim Uniting Church.
 Open: 12.00 - 2.00 pm Mon-Fri, and Sunday Church Services.

“Those who Dream…”

The art works displayed for the Advent Christmas exhibition at Pilgrim Uniting Church were chosen from artist Rev Vikki Waller’s extensive work going back more than 30 years. They are matched with the readings and themes of Hope, Peace, Joy, Love, Dreaming, Perseverance and Praise for Advent, Christmas, The Epiphany and the Flight into Egypt.

The theme “Those who Dream…” is about us being called to carry, support and encourage one another’s dreams.

The Bible stories are well-known to all and have been chosen for their relevance to life in the 21st century.
