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 3. God said "Let the water under the heavens be gathered into one place, so that dry land may appear", and so it was. God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the water He called sea; and God saw it was good. Then God said, "Let the earth produce growing things; let there be on the earth plants that bear seed, and trees bearing fruit each with its own kind of seed". So it was; the earth produced growing things, plants bearing their own kind of seed and trees bearing fruit, each with its own kind of seed; and God saw it was good. So evening came; the third day.
