Promoting the Good News about Jesus Christ and encouraging Christians to share it with others
The Trust started the Cathedral Project in 2006. It was an ambitious plan tocommission a textile artist (Jacqui Frost) to design and make a set of 10 screens onthe theme of CREATION to be displayed at Coventry Cathedral. This was to help thehuge number of visitors, who pass through the doors of the cathedral every day,discover more about the Christian faith and understand more clearly why such abuilding was built in the first place. Five years and much stitching later, we now have
ten
sets of textile art work with thetitles:
Creation
,
River of Life
,
Prayer 
,
Good Grief? 
 
The Beatitudes
,
Our Father 
,
Ritesof Passage
,
 Angels
,
 Jesus Is
, and
The Journey 
.(See www.cathedralexhibition.org.uk for more details about them.)These exhibitions are rotated around;Bristol Cathedral, Coventry Cathedral, Dewsbury Minster, Exeter Cathedral,Gloucester Cathedral, Leicester Cathedral, Rochester Cathedral, York Minster and weare actively inviting the Deans of other Cathedrals to use these displays.In addition to the screens for use in cathedrals we also have textile replicas of
Creation
,
Prayer 
and
Our Father 
as banners for churches to hire. These have beenused in the past year for 24/7 prayer events, church anniversaries and celebrations,Easter and Harvest celebrations, and various mission outreaches and initiatives.To accompany the exhibitions we havewritten and produced leaflets givinginformation about the artwork andthemes. In addition we have now printeda 128 page, hardback book:
threads through life and faith 
This beautiful, full colour book gives theartist’s thoughts behind each exhibitionas well as the passage from Scriptureupon which they are based. The book isnow available from Deo Gloria and also incathedral bookshops. If you would like tobuy a copy please visit our website

Christian Enquiry Agency 
 
Following many years of partnership with the Deo Gloria Trust, the Christian EnquiryAgency has transformed itself into an organisation that is ready to meet theopportunities of the internet age.
 
The CEA gives free, reliable and objective information to those who want to find outmore about the Christian faith. Under its new coordinator, Peter Graystone, it haslaunched a fascinating website:
www.christianity.org.uk
Very soon after its launch in November 2010, the site was being visited by about 100new enquirers every day. During the week before Christmas, while the BBC wasbroadcasting
The Nativity 
, that figure rose to 900 per day at the start of this year.The numbers have settled now at about 500 per week.Of those, about a dozen people every week make contact and are given whateverhelp they ask for to take their next step of faith – part of the Bible, prayers,information about local churches, or guidance about responding to Jesus’ call. Thepartnership with Deo Gloria helps to provide this life-changing service.
 
M
watched
The Nativity 
and as a result she went to midnight communion for the firsttime on Christmas Eve. She googled 'Christianity' on Boxing Day and foundwww.christianity.org.uk. She wrote, ‘During the service I started to think about Godand Jesus and wondered why people believe in them so strongly. I suppose I ought tostart reading the Bible but I've no idea where to begin ...I feel something important ishappening but I have never been slightly religious so I don't know what to make of it. Iwould quite like to go back and try church again but I feel I need to know morebefore I do. Can you offer any help?’Through Deo Gloria, M got help the very next day, and the conversation that began atChristmas is still going. Do take time to look at the website and think about whetheryou could add the address www.christianity.org.uk to the foot of letters, emails,church news sheets or websites.
