Win up to £10,000 for your church!

Our 2017 Church Competition is all about celebrating the community work of the UK’s churches.

We want churches to get creative and so are inviting all of our church insurance customers to submit a piece of original artwork on A3 paper that celebrates the role their church plays in its local community. Entries can be created by anyone with a connection to the church, young or old, and we welcome collaborations! Submissions can be via any medium - be that collage, crayons, chalk, felt-tip, embroidery or something else!

We only insist that the work is original and true to our theme of celebrating the church as a cornerstone of community life. We will combine the best entries with the aim of creating the largest piece of community art that has ever been produced in the UK - ‘The Great Community Mural’.

The Mural will be 10 metres in length and three metres high, and feature as many of the entries as we can include, with the very best five printed at a larger scale, and the overall winner given pride of place in the centre of the Mural.

The prizes

The winning church will receive a prize of £10,000; with 4 runners-up receiving £2,500 each. The Great Community Mural will be unveiled at a prestigious London venue before touring to a select number of cathedrals around the UK.

The closing date for entries is 21st August 2017
