A series of events celebrating the human expression of “God’s creativity” have been taking place across the borough over the last two weeks - and it’s not too late to get your fix.

The H’Art Festival - which organisers describe as incorporating the themes of holiness, hope and Havering - has turned churches and halls in to makeshift exhibition spaces hosting photography, paintings and arts and crafts.

Knitting sessions, film reviews and hymn singing events have also taken place, with about 25 churches and nearly 300 people involved.

Organiser Jan Stainer, 57, who works at The Church of the Good Shepherd in Collier Row, said of the mostly free festival: “It’s just people’s own efforts - what that means to them.

“It’s artwork that, in being created, points to the creator.”

A exhibition of photography by Havering artists at the Salvation Army Church in Romford runs until Sunday. A variety of events at libraries in Romford, Hornchurch and Rainham and at Ardleigh Green’s All Saints Church continue until Friday.
