Art Outreach in London

Do you have the desire to share the Gospel through visual art? Here is an opportunity for you to do just that in the London Borough of Harlesden, In partnership with OMUK and a local Church.


If you have never used your art as an evangelistic tool, this will be an ideal place to start; if you have we would love for you to join us.


You will be using your chosen medium to capture the surrounding area and interact with local people as you sketch, paint or photograph. You will receive some training in starting conversations with strangers and introducing them to Jesus. You will also be given input in how to use your art as a means to share the Gospel, and what it means to be an artist who wants to make a difference. There could be the opportunity to use your skills to bless people in the town by drawing or painting their portrait, home or pet depending on your chosen medium or skill. Plein Air is an ideal way of connecting with people as they go about their business. The week will culminate with an exhibition evening where you will have the opportunity to sell the work you have produced. You will have lots of fun and visit some local landmarks that are inspirational for the visual artist.

Who is this for?

Teamwork and a passion to serve are key elements. You need to be passionate about telling the story of Jesus.
