Kersey Shrine and Arts Programme

Kersey Shrine


Kersey was famous for its Shrine for hundreds of years. It drew pilgrims and enriched lives with closer connections to God and each other

Despite the Shrine bringing many thousands of people closer to God, seemingly intolerance and hatred were stronger; by the middle of the 17th century after the purging of England's churches by puritans and soldiers it was destroyed, smashed and left in fragments...

...on the 8th March 2019 the Shrine space will be re-hallowed by Bishop Martin with a series of installations to inspire faith, prayer and pilgrimage

Kersey Arts Programme


An opportunity to explore your creative side through pottery, painting, music and poetry...

...but also a creative space for stroke survivors; dementia cafes; bereavement support; and children with complex learning difficulties.
