Cheltenham’s latest festival is something like the 'tiny mustard seed that a man planted in a garden’ that ‘grows and becomes a tree, and the birds make nests in its branches’ (Luke 13:19). Let us now gather in the shade of that tree, delight in the songs of the birds and wonder at the God that led us to this place. Anthony Oliver, Fundraising Consultant, Gardener of Seeds
Enabled churches from across Cheltenham to come together in celebration of a rich heritage through contemporary and traditional arts, and to share this creative expression with our local community. Through artistic diversity the Festival highlighted the creativity and unity we all share in faith in a Creator God in an attractive, compelling and colourful way!
Opening with A Big Sing, directed by conductor David Ogden, Choirs and Musicians, from all over Cheltenham.
