Ladies Canal Boat Art Outreach UK 2023

Our purpose is to share God’s love with people. We want to equip, train and challenge Jesus followers to reflect Him and to use their God given gifts. As a result, we share hope with the people we meet along the way, investing in them and building bridges. We also hope that all participants will go away strengthened in their faith and with a deeper desire to share their faith cross-culturally.

Spend a week on a canal boat, exhibiting and producing your art works to share the love of Jesus. Includes orientation and training.

After arrival on the boat, the Saturday evening and Sunday morning will be spent in orientation and preparation. This will include prayer, getting to know the team and some art evangelism training. The canals of the UK are busy waterways with many full-time boaters and holiday makers. Many people walk along the canal footpaths for recreation. Taking up opportunities to engage with both groups as you paint, draw and exhibit the art you produce will be the main focus. There will be spiritual input for participants and the opportunity to discover their role through their art in the great commission. Participants should bring their own tools of the trade (eg brushes and paints) but there will be media of all kinds available for them to use alongside their own. Easels and cleaning materials will be provided. It will be useful if participants can bring some of their artwork with them for a small exhibition. There will be a debrief at the end.

Artists who are willing to paint and engage with the public in a relaxed manner. A good team spirit is essential. Some artistic ability is necessary and a willingness to learn from and help others is essential.
Will there be accomodation provided?
This will be on a canal boat in single berths. A canal boat is not a large cruiser so personal luggage should be kept to a minimum.
Will there be food provided?
All meals will be provided (please note it may not be possible to cater for those with severe allergies eg nuts.)
Do I need to make my own travel arrangements?
Participants can be picked up from the local train station which is Chirk. Those coming by car can leave their cars at the OMUK base.
What should my health condition be like?
Participants must be in good health and physically able to stand, walk and do other physical activities as needed.
Do I need a visa?

Please check www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa

If coming from overseas and not able to bring paints these will be provided. Owing to the nature of the accommodation this outreach is only available for ladies.
