The Christian Arts Trust was delighted to be able to support the annual ‘Edinburgh Festival of the Sacred Arts’ in August 2023. The Trust made a significant donation to a unique Floral Festival entitled, “In the Steps of the Master: Jesus and the Landscape”.
Held in the in the centre of Edinburgh in the famous Old St Paul’s Church over several days – and officially part of the Edinburgh Fringe events – the exhibition exceeded expectations. It was the only flower festival amongst hundreds of Fringe events and was experienced by around 600 people, some of whom had travelled long distances to see it.
In support of this beautiful but often-overlooked aspect of the Christian Arts, this free exhibition also received generous donations by those who attended. During the exhibition an organ recital, a performance of Durufle’s ‘Requiem’, and a musical High Mass were also held in the church, thus bringing together two powerful areas of human creativity to celebrate the enduring Christian message.
