Proclaim it afresh in art

This Christmas local artist Jez Thomas has launched an exhibition of paintings telling the Gospel story through art. On display now at St Mary’s Priory are scenes from the Nativity of Jesus Christ, other paintings will be added as the year progresses.

Reflecting on his work, Jez said:

“I simply aim to inspire people with the story of the Gospels, it has been extremely profitable to me spiritually already.”

When all thirty are completed they will tell the whole story of Jesus. The plan is to take the painitings on  tour of Churches, Chapels and especially pop-up venues around the country, when their time at St Mary’s Priory comes to end.

Alongside the painting will be poems reflecting the scene written by Fr Tom Bates, the Priory’s Sub-Prior.






THE main Week of Prayer service for Abergavenny will be held here on Saturday, Janaury 19th at 2pm. The President of the Council of Churches, Methodist Minister Revd Catherine Lewis will preach on the week's theme of Justice. 

Other services during the week will be held each day at 12noon. We will visit churches of different denominations each day and hear 'What special gifts  they bring' to the church.
