We have two art teams at United:
With a busy schedule both morning and afternoon, delegates often come to the workshop to chill out, respond to the teaching in other venues, to try out new activities or meet with other creatives. For adults only, this venue often becomes a sanctuary for many.
There are opportunities to get stuck into inspiring activities, as well as meeting and chatting to delegates.
- Age: 18+
- Skills/attributes: You need to be creatively minded but not necessarily gifted. You also need to be a team player and be prepared to muck in with some very messy (literally) situations.
- Hours: You will help run the workshops in the morning and afternoon, spend time with our team pastor in the middle of the day, help man the booking desk in the late afternoon then help with a reflective DIY art session in the evening. There will also be a team meeting either at 8.30am (Week 1) or lunchtime (Week 2).
Some testimonies from the Arts Workshop venue:
"It was lovely to be able to come along, look at a blank canvas and just be free to paint something again. Thank you for the encouragement and reigniting an old spark in me."
"Fantastic experience - as always! Thank you. The sense of peace, restoration and pleasure in creating was a joy."
"Brilliant. Just popped in to see what happens here and God equipped me with new ideas for children’s worship ministry."
This team is based in the Marketplace Gallery and is most suited to people with an interest in art.
- Age: 18+
- Skills/attributes: A keen interest in art. Past experience in curating would be helpful.
