The Church of Saints Peter and Paul at King’s Sutton is inviting people who live and work in the village to participate in an exhibition of their work throughout the weekend of February 9 and 10. There will be an opening event at 11:00 on Saturday morning, February 9, and the church will be open till 16:00. The exhibition will be open from 12:00 until 16:00 the following day. Refreshments will be available.
Parish priest Fr Roger Bellamy says:
“Work is a vital part of all our lives. It is, of course, the way we earn a living, but through it we offer services to others, or we make things that others need. It is a way in which we are able to love our neighbours and through which we seek to make the world a better place.
“Work is an important part of who we are and of our essential humanity, and the Christian community sees it as a divine gift. Obviously this applies to all work – whether we are paid for it or not – but in this celebration we are focussing on the paid work done in our community.”
Among those already taking part in the exhibition are teachers, writers, builders, IT experts, a blacksmith, a taxi service, the post office, the parish priest (!), farmers and many more. Fr Bellamy hopes the event will provide a good opportunity for participants to network and discover who else works in the village. He is keen for those who haven’t yet received an invitation to get in contact as well. “Please ask – you haven’t been ignored deliberately – we simply don’t know about you!”
