Women in the Bible
5th May, 6:30 pm to 8th May, 2:00 pm£325
Bishop Graham Kings will bring to Launde seven paintings of ‘Women in the Bible’ which Silvia Dimitrova, a Bulgarian icon writer and painter, and he have been working on for sixteen years. They will focus on five: Sarah, Miriam, Ruth, Lydia and Priscilla, exploring them, interactively and prayerfully, through biblical commentary, expository poetry and listening to the anthems written for them by Tristan Latchford, Director of Music, St Chad’s College, Durham. There will be space for personal prayer and creativity.
