The Crafted Revelation at Joymount Presbyterian Church, Carrickfergus

Friday 18th & Saturday 19th May 2019

Joymount PW presents The Crafted Revelation – 30 scenes from the Bible depicted in craft.

On the weekend of Friday 18th and Saturday 19th May 2019, the PW group at Joymount Presbyterian Church in Carrickfergus are holding a craft event with a difference.

Thirty scenes from the Old and New Testament will be depicted in craft displays throughout the church. As well as knitting and crocheting, the scenes also incorporate stitching and woodwork.

Joanne Magee from Joymount told The Church Page: “The event is titled The Crafted Revelation as each scene will demonstrate how God has revealed himself through the stories in the Bible. 

Visitors will be guided through Bible times, starting with the creation and will include Old Testament characters such as Noah, Moses, David, Daniel and Jonah. The New Testament starts with the nativity and leads through Jesus life, death and resurrection and also the work of Paul. The journey will finish with a view of Revelation and a scene depicting our church today.

While this started off as a PW project it quickly extended to the whole congregation. Work has been ongoing on this since September and has been a great way to allow members of the congregation to use their creative talents for God’s work. The scenes have been crafted by individuals, old and young, male and female, and by organisations within the church. It has allowed new friendships to be built and has created a real sense of team.”

The event is open to all and will run from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 18th May and 2pm to 5pm on Sunday 19th May. Light refreshments will be available in the church hall.

The weekend will finish with a praise service at 6:30pm on the Sunday evening.

Donations will be welcomed and will go to the PW Mission Fund supporting work at home and overseas. You don’t need to be a crafter to enjoy this. It will be a fun weekend for everyone with a special quiz sheet to accompany the scenes available for younger visitors.
