KIDS have been showing their colourful artwork in a church in London’s multi-cultural East End depicting three faiths.

The children worked alongside artists Thea Stallwood and Becky Hurst to create works with themes about the Abrahamic’ faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

They produced artwork and made a video about the Jewish Passover festival that they edited themselves. Passover, which starts on Tuesday, celebrates the escape of Hebrew slaves from Ancient Egypt.

Their works were displayed for three days in St Matthew’s Church in Bethnal Green. The youngsters, from nearby St Mathias Primary, also acted as curators showing the public around and explaining what they’ve been doing.
