Art & Craft Festival returns in May

After a (well-earned!) break in 2019 the Quinton Art & Craft Festival is set to return in May. With displays of paintings, drawings and crafts taking over the Church, plus a variety of stalls and a café, the Festival will run for three days from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th May 2020.

Established in 2001, the Festival has become the leading event of its kind in the area displaying the work of many renowned local artists. There are usually between 250 and 300 paintings and drawings on display along with craft stalls, flower displays and art demonstrations, a Friday evening concert and our ever-popular café serving hot drinks, snacks and light meals.

All proceeds from the Festival will, as in previous years, go towards the current Church charitable project.

Quinton Methodist Church has achieved the Bronze Eco Church Award. We are now working hard towards the Silver Award.

The Eco Church initiative considers how we, as a church, care for God’s earth in various areas of life and work. These include worship and teaching, the management of Church buildings and land, community and global engagement, and lifestyle choices.

Periodic surveys of how the church is caring for God’s Earth are conducted and then points awarded. Through a process of continuous improvement it is possible to work towards Bronze and Silver Awards with the ultimate goal being a Gold Award.
