The Creation Tapestries

Mr. Michael Rumsey has been a church member for over six decades, as well as our organist for the past fifty years.

Michael, an expert embroiderer as well as musician, spent over one full year making six beautiful tapestries.
Each one depicts an impression of the days of the Creation, inspired by the powerful, poetic and moving passages from Genesis, the first book of the Bible.

The works have been framed and are on permanent display around the walls of the church. You are welcome to come and admire them. See the Services, Regular Events and Special Events pages to find out when the Church is open.

Day 1. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was a vast waste and darkness covered the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered over the surface of the water. God said, “Let there be light”, and there was light; and God saw the light was good, and He separated light from darkness. He called the light day, and the darkness night. So evening came, the morning came, it was the first day.
