Image of the Invisible God

No-one has ever seen God and yet we are surrounded by clues. Art fuels our imagination. Through the camera lens we are helped to see different dimensions of reality. Aston & Erdington Photographic Society and Chester Road Baptist Church invite entries for a photography competition that challenges entrants to interpret and capture the Image of the Invisible God

Aston & Erdington Photographic Society meets every Monday evening during term-time, 8-10 pm, at Chester Road Baptist Church, Chester Road, Sutton Coldfield B73 5HU. It is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain through the Midland Counties Photographic Federation. They are always keen to welcome new members.
