Introduction to the Art Fair Online 2020
Thank you very much for visiting Methlick Parish Church’s Art Fair.
There is something about art that is both therapeutic and prophetic.
First, art is therapeutic.
It can take us places.
It can rouse in us thoughts and feelings that have lain dormant for decades.
It can help us pause and reflect and change our course of action.
It can lift our spirits.
It can draw us in, raise us up and open our hearts to God and others.
Secondly, it is prophetic.
It can remind us that there is still beauty in this world, that even in the midst of the havoc wreaked by Covid-19, beauty, like goodness, truth and love, will prevail.
My hope and prayer is that whether you win your preferred piece of art or not, you will be touched by the spirit and beauty of the art listed herein.
I owe a huge debt of gratitude to each of the artists who have kindly donated their artwork for this event, and to you for your kind donations as well.
The monies raised from this Art Fair will enable the work of our church here in Methlick to continue.
Thank you very much
Rev. Dr. Will Stalder

Methlick Stewardship team would like to thank local entrepreneur Thomas Smalley (aged 17) of Full Stop Apparel for his guidance and practical help building this website for us. We couldn’t have managed without you Thomas and wish you well!
Please check out Thomas’s own website:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
