Event Details

‘Sarah, Miriam, Magdalene, Lydia, Ruth and Priscilla: paintings and poetry’

Bishop Graham Kings explores with his expository poetry  three of the six commissioned paintings by Silvia Dimitrova.

Bishop Graham will  bring to St Katharines 6 paintings of ‘Women in the Bible’ which Silvia Dimitrova, a Bulgarian icon writer and painter, and he have been working on for 16 years. During the day Bishop Graham will lead us to focus and explore the deeper meanings of 3 of these.

We will explore 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 for you to take time in St Katharines extraordinary urban oasis,  a chance to step aside from the City but not leave it.

The day includes welcome coffee and pastries, lunch and afternoon pot of tea and cake.
