God inspires us to use our talents to create and to express ourselves, engaging with His world around us and reaching out to others in new and different ways.
Just as important as the will to create is the opportunity to do so. That’s why we’re determined to make chances to be creative available to as many people as possible.
St Bart’s Church is home to Read College of Performing Arts, where talented young people hone their musical and dramatic skills. Our curate Serena offers a listening ear as these young people begin to step out into the world and shape the kinds of lives they want to live.
Music offers us another way to praise God and our choir is a great way of joining our souls with others as we sing our songs of praise.
Our parish garden helps us engage with nature and appreciate the miracle of the changing seasons. Growing our own food reminds us that we should work to sustain ourselves in all areas of life. It’s a joyful, peaceful and thoroughly remarkable place where all are welcome to get their hands dirty and their minds calm.
