Uppermill Methodist Church presents
Knitted Bible Stories Exhibition
From Wednesday 1st June until the LIttle Fishes service on Sunday 12th June, UMC will be hosting the highly popular and unusual Knitted Bible Stories Exhibition.
On loan from St Georges URC, Hartlepool, the exhibits depict 33 of the better known Bible stories from the Old and New Testaments. Each of the characters, animals, and many of the props have been cleverly knitted, showing skill and tremendous attention to detail.
This is the first time our church has undertaken such a project, and we are looking forward to sharing this opportunity to celebrate well known bible stories in such an innovative and create way.
We have a range of activities throughout the event, including pom-pom making, weaving, knitting and crafts. There is a treasure hunt, an online quiz and afternoon storytime sessions with tea and refreshments.
Crafters and Knitters
There are two Knit and Natter Nights on Thursday 2nd and Thursday 9th June from 7.30pm.
Knitwear Designer, Jacinta Bowie will be running two Finishing Schools on Saturday 11th June. Charged at just £5 per person, these limited place sessions will be very popular, so please book a place by calling 07719 346112 or email here.
