“This celebration of the fellowship between culture, church and community in Waltham Forest has engaged many people from the five churches involved and the wider community. The artists, by incorporating voices, images and creative work from such a diverse range of people, have expressed and shared the theme of ‘fellowship’ in a powerful way. We are delighted to have supported this thought-provoking project.” Paul Playford, grants officer at Allchurches Trust
