On the afternoon of Saturday 24 June, members of Beldon-Iluka Uniting Church shared art from their homes, brushes, chisels and needles with the wider Beldon community, as part of our 40th anniversary of the Uniting Church in Australia celebrations.
The local Beldon Primary School was excited to join in the celebrations too and their young artists put on a brilliant display of art work.
We were amazed with the talent in our area. Quilt makers, china painters, modern artists, wood workers, machine and hand embroiderers all submitted art for the display. People brought in favourite purchased art works too, some reminiscent of countries they had spent time in.
The afternoon ended with a line dancing display and most of the attendees took to the floor to learn some of the basic steps. The event ended with a sausage sizzle.
We also look forward to celebrating our congregation’s 30th anniversary in September of this year.
