- What are your main reasons for being a member of c4M?
- How can c4m contribute to you, as a church or an artist?
- What is your vision for c4m?

Following the Grace & Passion exhibition many of the works included in the exhibition, together with some additions (see, for example, the images of works by Elizabeth Duncan Meyer above), will be taken to All Saints West Ham who are making a permanent exhibition space available to commission4mission. This will mean that we will always have the opportunity to show potential commissioners of future works examples of work by our current artists. We intend using the space for a mixture of group and solo shows beginning with a group show which will be our contribution to this year's West Ham Festival. Once installed this exhibition can be viewed during All Saints' usual opening times (click here for details) or by phoning the Church Office on 0208 519 0764.

The exhibition's centrepiece is the first showing of a contemporary set of Stations of the Cross by Rosalind Hore. The Stations of the Cross have been a big influence on her and her work. Each of her Stations feature three rose buds as a sign of the Trinity. Also on display around the church will be work from Rosalind’s series of clay and plaster sculptures. A booklet featuring Rosalind's Stations is on sale at the exhibition.
Also featuring in the exhibition is work by other commission4mission artists: Adam Boulter, Colin Burns, Ally Clarke, Ann Creasey, Michael Creasey, Valerie Dean, Jonathan Evens, Rosalind Hore, Mark Lewis, Nadiya Pavliv, Caroline Richardson, Joy Rousell Stone, Henry Shelton, Peter Shorer and Peter Webb.
There will also be lenten reflections inspired by Jonathan Evens, and we will be consulting with members about the development of commission4mission. The evening will be relaxed and informal and a good opportunity to meet and talk with fellow members.
