Throughout history and across different cultures and religions, people have used art as a method to  explore spirituality. Songs and poems, painting and sculptures, textiles used in prayer and decoration of buildings are some of the ways art has been used not only in reverence and prayer, to depict encounters with the unknown, but also to question, explore and reflect on themes beyond the physical. Meeting at St Piran’s & St Michael’s church in Perranuthnoe, the Art and Spirituality Group offers people a chance to join in this historic tradition. To question and reflect, to create and to have fun.  

At the beginning of our meetings, we spend some time exploring a spiritual theme, taking inspiration from poetry, reflections, and sayings, as well as visual images throughout history and reflecting on what they mean for us today. We continue to engage with the spiritual theme using a different art or craft technique each month. While many take part in an activity provided which aims to relate to the theme, people are welcomed to bring their own art or craft projects or to make use of the range of materials available at the church. If you have any questions or would like more information please contact Rev Sophie at or 07599 280851
