'No Stone Unturned'

Emmanuel Church, Saltburn, has uncovered evidence of stained glass windows and rood carvings designed by Arts & Crafts member Sir Charles Nicholson. A signed drawing of the church interior and a handwritten letter from the firm of Rush, Nicholson and Rush are highlights of a new exhibition ‘No Stone Unturned’ which has been put together by members of Emmanuel Church.
Precious artefacts, original architectural drawings, 100 year old Parish Magazines, personal stories and treasured photographs will all be displayed in the purpose built ArtSpace inside the church. Visitors are welcome to view the exhibition and enjoy discovering the developments and decorations of the building as featured in our simple guide (available at the door). For those who enjoy a touch of detective work, there is also a treasure trail to follow.

Later in the year and as a follow up to this historical exhibition, artwork by members of the church family will be displayed alongside some of the artefacts. This second part of the exhibition is entitled ‘Living Stones’ and will include inspiring work in glass, ceramic, acrylics, felt, found objects and other media. ‘No Stone Unturned’ is showing at Emmanuel Church Saltburn from Friday April 29 to Monday May 2, 12 noon to 5pm. ‘Living Stones’ is showing from Saturday 9 July to Sunday 10 July, 12noon to 5pm. The church will be open on most Saturdays through the summer and by arrangement at other times. For further details please ring the church office 01287 205322.
