Lentfest is a community festival run by AGAP since 2007, to encourage reflection on faith ideas through the creative and performing arts during a season of renewal and reparation. It has attracted the support and participation of people from a variety of faith backgrounds, including those of no particular denomination...so wherever you are in your faith journey, you are welcome here!
Arts in Autumn is an ever growing mini-festival. AGAP’s first Arts in Autumn programme was launched in September – November 2008 and we have continued to offer a programme at this time of year on an annual basis.
Smaller in scale than its “bigger brother”, Lentfest, Arts in Autumn is nonetheless a growing mini-festival, providing a varied programme of music, art and drama to brighten up the darker nights as we creep into winter.
Recent developments in the Arts in Autumn programme have included the increased involvement of activities and events involving young people. The Annual Schools Art Competition and faith-based drama workshops previously run during Lentfest are now rehoused in the Arts in Autumn programme. The programme has also involved a number of collaborations, raising awareness of social and ethical issues and working with schools, educational organisations, charities and other Church agencies.
