Stained glass windows, banners, symbols and icons are familiar ways of using visual images in church. From 2002 - 2004, Cafe Church engaged a series of artists-in-residence to take on this tradition and breathe new life into it. 

In 2002-2003, Cafe Church employed a digital artist, Rick Bull. Rick produced a series of digital animations - prayers, scripture passages, visualised themes which we used in worship regularly.

The program continued in 2004, with Rob Thwaites (theatrical practitioner, digital artist) who was employed as our Arts Facilitator, and Cameron Semmens (performance poet and wordsmith) and Pete Harding (musician and digital artist) as Artists in Residence.

The Cafe Church Animations CD is a compilation of the work created by all these artists over that period.  These animations have been used by Cafe Church and many other communities as a regular part of worship. Think of them as contemporary stained glass windows in motion!

Some stocks of the CDs remain and we want to see them out in the world being used, so are offering the rest of our stock at the sale price of $10AUD  + postage and handling.
