Epiphany Arts Festival Now Open

There is a wide variety of artwork now on display at the Northwood Congregational Church.  

All the beautiful artwork is now hanging on the walls outside the Sunday School wing.  These pieces represent the artistic gifts within our congregation; an appropriate celebration of Epiphany which celebrates the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  Please take the time to appreciate the talents of our church members, the beauty of the artwork and the dedication of Neil English for his hours of hard work organizing and putting it all together to display everything so beautifully. 

The Festival opened on January 13th and will be dismantled immediately after church on February 10th.

There is a very small selection of photographs of the artwork on the Newsletter page for those who can't make it into the church to enjoy the art in person.
