Jenny Aitken graduated in Fine Art from Aberystwyth in 1998 and worked for a time in graphic design. Her first solo exhibition was in London but then she moved to Belper where she still lives. This is the third exhibition of Jenny’s work that we have hosted at Derby Cathedral Centre. In both 2007 and 2012 Jenny exhibited her distinctive interpretations of the landscape of her adopted county, Derbyshire, but this year we will be able to enjoy sparkling evocations of her birthplace in Alderney and her regular visits to Cornwall. Jenny is constantly improving her style and has an amazing ability to depict the movement of the sea and its capacity to reflect the light of the sky.

Freewheeling is Janet Mayled’s title for her exhibition throughout September in the Sir Richard Morris Lounge at Derby Cathedral Centre. Janet lives in Buxton and trained as a textile designer. ‘Bicycles are inspiring’, she says, ‘for the captivating compositions they can present, drawing your eye through the painting, breaking down elements into patterns’.

During August the Community of the Holy Name in Oakwood celebrates the 150th Anniversary of its foundation. As part of the celebration the Sir Richard Morris Lounge in Derby Cathedral Centre is hosting a display of icons by one of the Community’s long serving members, Sister Theresa Margaret. Under the title ‘Aids to Devotion’ a selection of her work will illustrate the way in which she has used her training as an artist in the service of God.

Christian Muslin Dialogue

A group representing the Cathedral, the churches of Normanton, and the Muslim community of the Jamia Mosque meets regularly for discussion and to deepen friendship. Is this ‘the new ecumenism’?

 

 

Cathedrals are called to be thoughtful and reflective places. And Cathedral Seminars, arranged regularly, and with invitations going out very widely, are designed to be safe spaces to look at key topics. Recently seminars have been held on same-sex marriage, the Church of North India, Credit Unions, the Ethics of War, and the church in Jerusalem. Details of future seminars will be posted on the website, with an invitation to all.

Credit Union Seminar

From 8th April until the end of August Derby Cathedral will be closed from Monday to Friday to undertake a major refurbishment. The Cathedral will be re-lit and re-wired and the heating system will be overhauled. The Cathedral will then be completely redecorated.

Derby Cathedral will be open on Saturdays and Sundays for visits and worship as normal.

Services will continue as normal on Monday to Friday but will take place in either the Bridge Chapel on Sowter Road or St Mary’s Church on Bridge Gate.

Daily services are listed on the SERVICES page of the website.

Please do call the Cathedral Office if you wish to find out more about the refurbishment.
