The church has been a communal exhibition venue.
I have developed its exhibiting space and shows of work 2007-12, curating works by 8-10 contributors – artists, and enthusiasts (children included) – each year in a variety of media from sculpture and painting to video and installation. With the church's 2010 Lent exhibition to put on, I also provided a quantity of 4' x 8' exhibition boards to show works of all sizes, a subsequent asset.
The venue has been lively. In 2009 I had a hand in starting the large scale Sunday evening Trail classical choral concerts that became a staple of the Trail 2009-12: Handel, Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi. One of the most exciting offshoots of my residency. See the choral page for details.
In subsequent years I have encouraged performance and organised slots for individual acts as part of the Trail's organising committee – poetry readings, a contemporary recorder ensemble, accordion playing, bands and some wildfire piano improvisation.
