Scotland In Our Eyes – Art Exhibition
A Celebration of Scotland through Art
Following last year’s successful exhibition Ireland In Our Eyes hosted at the London Irish Centre in Camden, this year the UrbanKelt Channel are continuing the Celtic theme to proudly present Scotland In Our Eyes on 1 – 8 August 2014.
This year’s UrbanKelt art exhibition Scotland In Our Eyes is an exciting celebration of Scotland through art, and is about the world’s perception of the host nation. UrbanKelt invited each of the artists to reflect on their personal experiences and to interpret some of the deeper traits, customs and traditions of Scotland. Each artist has responded in a personal way to the element that most inspires them.

UrbanKelt is a non-profit organisation and a silent auction will be held with all proceeds going to Borderline a Scottish Charity dedicated to helping homeless Scottish people in London.
The church will be open to visitors as part of the London Open House event from 11 am to 5 pm on Saturday and 2 pm to 5 pm on Sunday. Again we will need volunteers to show visitors round the church, and to serve teas and coffees in the hall.
Nearer the time, Norma McGoldrick will be co-ordinating the event and looking for volunteers to help, but please put the dates in your diary now and get ready to sign up when the appeal comes out.
This is an important opportunity for us to let the rest of the world know of the existence of Crown Court, and to show off our beautiful church. Occasionally people who find us on Open House weekend start attending services – so let’s do the best we can to welcome people in.
During July and August we are planning to have the church and hall boilers replaced, and then to get the hall floor sanded and varnished. Dates for the work have still to be finalised, and further information will be included in the church notices when it is available.
The work on the boilers will take two weeks, and care will be needed in the vicinity of the toilets during that period. The work to the hall floor will take five days. There will be no access to the hall while the floor is being done, but this should only affect the Thursday service, not the Sunday services.
Please observe any warning notices during the period of the works.
We now have a new supply of Crown Court mugs in a range of different colours at £5 each; Sunday School bicentenary tea towels, 100% cotton, white with the burning bush in vibrant red and green, also £5 each; Crown Court notelets at £1.50 for 5; cards by Peter Esslemont at £1 each; cards for every occasion at 50p each; postcards showing the interior of the church and details from the stained glass windows at 30p each or £1 for 4; and a range of Christian publications: all available on the welcome desk in the hall. And our much admired colourful bookmarks are FREE! Please take one for yourself and some to distribute among your friends. And if you’re going away on holiday this summer, why not take some to leave at any churches you may visit.
