We are pleased to welcome Mo Walton to the URC for the Art & Architecture Trail (8/9 September2018) – “Having been brought up in Derbyshire I have known its peaks and dales since childhood. My semi-abstract paintings are inspired by the changing atmosphere and colours of the moorland, fields and local quarries. Drystone walls and ancient tracks cross and divide this land, telling of its past. These are the influences and feelings which I try to evoke in my work. My paintings of British breeds of sheep are more naturalistic. I am intrigued by the variations in these animals which are usually thought of as simply white and fluffy.”
In the Glenorchy Centre (which is just opposite the Church) members/friends of the church will be serving served coffee, lunches, tea and cakes on the Saturday and Sunday 8th and 9th September. As you walk around the Art & Architecture Trail we will be very pleased to welcome you if you call in at the Glenorchy Centre for tea/coffee/cakes or a meal. Also in the United Reformed Church Mo Walton will be displaying her work – do please call in. (Please see the event Mo Walton on our website.)
Over 150 artists/craftsmen exhibited their work in private homes, historic buildings, gardens and courtyards, shop windows, churches and unconventional gallery spaces all over Wirksworth.
On Sunday afternoon 19th August at 4pm we are delighted that the Soar Valley Music Centre will be giving a concert at West Derbyshire URC. The young people are staying in our Glenorchy Centre and it is wonderful that they are performing a concert in Wirksworth. Please come along and enjoy their music. Free admission – donation if you wish for the URC.
On Thursday 2nd August (from 7.30 to 9pm) Jenny and David invite you to a Poetry and Coffee Evening in the Glenorchy Centre, Chapel Lane, Wirksworth in aid of URC church funds.
