The Altered Arts project has a new exhibition; taking place in St Peter and St Paul Church in Caistor on October 18th and 19th.

The video and sound installation by Gen Doy and Lynn Dennison titled, ‘When will our fields be seen, our church bells heard', has been inspired by the poems of Charles Tennyson Turner; an ordained priest who inherited the estate of his great-uncle in Caistor, Lincolnshire in 1835.

The Bishop of Lincoln encourages all people to go and see the art installations displayed: "You may well be surprised and delighted by what you find. The church and creative artists share a lot of common ground. Artists are trying to express beauty, truth and the meaning of life, which is the same as the church is trying to do through it's worship and express through its buildings."

The Diocese of Lincoln has 645 parish churches, which Bishop Christopher would like to see, "kept alive and refreshed", explaining, "these churches belong to everyone."

There are more art exhibitions planned for the future, which we will keep you up to date with on our website, Crosslincs and social media pages.
