‘All For All’ mu­ral at city church

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

A CHURCH in Dundee has in­stalled a new mu­ral.

The paint­ing, out­side Dundee Methodist Church, shows two car­i­ca­tures em­brac­ing and the words “All For All”.

Painted by Perth-based artist Katie Guthrie at the an­nual So­las Fes­ti­val, the mu­ral is the first of what is hoped to be a dis­play for lo­cal artists, high­light­ing dif­fer­ent as­pects of the mis­sion of the church.

Com­ment­ing on the paint­ing, the su­per­in­ten­dent min­is­ter, the Rev. Nick Baker, said: “This beau­ti­ful, vivid and fun paint­ing makes us smile and we hope it will bring a smile to the peo­ple of Dundee.

“As a lo­cal church, we want to sup­port lo­cal artists and hope to use our win­dow space to show­case the work of lo­cal peo­ple, while also draw­ing at­ten­tion to the needs of the city and our duty of care to one another.”

The church has also re­cently launched a new clothes bank, work­ing along­side other groups in Dundee, with the sup­port of the city coun­cil.

This clothes bank of­fers clothes to those who need them the most.
