Vicky Olliver and Jack Cooper to feature in Imago Dei Exhibition, Enfield

Christ Church United Reformed Church on Chase Side, Enfield,
widely recognized for its iconic spire, will be throwing open its
doors this coming Holy Week to host a community exhibition
entitled Imago Dei.


Imago Dei will focus on images of God, and of
humanity, and will include poetry, music, and art.

Vicky Olliver’s ‘Spring’, and Jack Cooper’s ‘Convert’ will be part of the exhibition.


On Wednesday 17th April and Saturday 20th April, between
11am and 1pm, local poet Mary Duggan will run a workshop
called “Where word meets art”, which will provide a practical
opportunity for members of the local community to add their
own work and thoughts to the exhibition.


Local poets, including Vicky Olliver, will be reading their poetry live on Saturday from
2pm to 3pm.

Revd Mark Meatcher, minister of Christ Church, explained the
aims of the exhibition:-
“Christ Church United Reformed Church are keen to show off
their building and to encourage a greater use of it. .
We are eager to encourage people to come and share with us
when we worship week by week, and also, with the support of
the local community, provide opportunities for shared
experiences together.
This exhibition enables us to do just that, and we look forward
to welcoming people to spend some time with us during Holy
Week in whatever way they can, or wish to do so.”


“Imago Dei” will be open daily during Holy Week from 15th to
21st April (10 am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, 1pm to 4pm on
Good Friday and 10 am to 4pm on Easter Saturday).
