Face2Face Arts Chaplaincy

Thank you to everyone who supports the Face2Face Arts Chaplaincy Celebration of the Arts.  We are excited about all the wonderful artwork that we are displaying this year.  In May we hosted Breathing Space, by Ruth Rotherham and in June we welcomed the Leigh Art Trail to St. Clement's once again, hosting 'Me-on-Sea' an awesome exhibition featuring art entries by children of four local schools. 

Huge thanks to everyone who supported the Second Face2Face Arts Chaplaincy exhibition, 'Requiem' a response to the centenary of the First World War.  The exhibition was displayed in St Clement’s Church for two weeks in October and November then transferred to the Leigh Community Centre until the end of November.  All proceeds are being donated to a local branch of the armed forces charity, SSFA [​Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association].

Thank you also to all who supported our autumn series of Sunday afternoon art lectures: "Meaning Beyond Absurdity" Art, Faith, War & Peace

For more information about Face2Face arts at St. Clement's, have a look at our Arts@ page.

All Are Welcome Here

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, gay, confused, filthy rich, comfortable, or dirt poor. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, skinny as a rake or could afford to lose a few pounds. You’re welcome if you are Old Leigh, New Leigh, Not Leigh, or just passing by. 

We welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti or can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re ‘just browsing,’ just woke up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven’t been in church since little Jack’s christening.We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like ‘organised religion.’ We’ve been there too!

If you blew all your money on the horses, you’re welcome here. We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost on the London Road and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts ... and you!
