YOUNG artists have created an award winning piece illustrating God's presence everywhere.

Talented youngsters at Bishop Bridgeman School in Great Lever won this year's Spirited Art competition organised annually by the National Association of Teachers of Religious Education.

Members of the school's Ethos group worked on the piece during their meetings on Saturday, designing and creating it themselves.

The idea was to represent that God is everywhere.

The artwork was designed for every adult or child, regardless of their religion, to relate to and interpret in their own unique way — so people of faiths can explore the question Where is God.

Beads and buttons were carefully placed on individually in the project, which spanned three months, to represent the many places and areas God can be found.

Each pupil was awarded a certificate celebrating their success in the primary section of the competition.

Headteacher Jill Pilling said: "The children came up with the idea of the work and ordered the beads and the buttons one by one.

"It was a labour of love and they have created a spectacular art piece which is on display in the hall."

She added: "When children take part in our daily worship they look at it is they see something different every time."
