What is Beyond?

BEYOND is an opportunity for people to explore spirituality through a variety of creative approaches. Beyond aims to help people to a deeper understanding of spirituality through the arts and other creative activities through exploring non-traditional ways of being Christian and to be a resource for church people who wish to further explore their relationship with God. Using art, poetry, philosophy and theology, BEYOND curates provocative spaces in order to inspire and stimulate discussion. The installations and events create environments for questions and grappling with ideas about God without signing up to an established line of dogmatic thought.

A MODERN REWRITE OF THE PREFACE TO THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER         Given that these days people are so diverse and think very differently about how worship should be performed, so that some cannot bear to alter the tiniest of their traditions while others want to change everything and have no respect for anything old, we thought it best not to worry too much what either of these extremes wanted but to focus on what pleases God that we all might benefit.
