Upcoming Events

Grans To Grans Fundraiser:

In Praise of Pews is the latest fundraising effort from the Nelson Grans to Grans society, which raises funds to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa.

Seven local artists will spend several months reworking pews originally housed in the First Baptist Church. At the same time, youth at the Nelson and District Youth Centre will make over five chairs taken from the old Willow Point church.

Show and auction dates still to be decided.
