Many creative people experience the process of “making” as an act of worship. God loves to be creative. He is our Maker, the Maker of the whole world, and our love of creativity is an expression of God’s nature in us. Therefore, The Maker’s Evensong is an evening service that allows people to worship our creative Maker through creative acts of making. It is lay led under the guidance of the Ascension Arts Initiative. The Ascension Arts Initiative exists to help the congregation connect various forms of creativity to personal and corporate worship, and to encourage creative people to contribute their gifts within the life of the community. What to expect:
- “Evensong” is a reflective evening service with worship music, Scripture readings, and times of quiet reflection. All members of the congregation are welcome.
- This service will also have stations available for those who wish to work creatively in response to the worship. Tables will be available, as will floor space for those who sculpt or work with movement. Bring your own materials.
- We hope to offer The Maker’s Evensong once a quarter on Friday evenings. Currently scheduled dates are February 10 and May 12
- Since creativity is fluid, each Evensong service is likely to be somewhat different. We want this to be a place where members of the congregation can practice contributing their creative gifts.
Please join us on Friday, February 10th at 7pm in Ascension’s New Catacombs (enter via Neville entrance).
Please pray with us for this new expression of our love for God, and for how God may want to work among us. If you have questions or would like to participate in a particular way, please contact Chris Massa (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Joanne Martin (email@example.com).
