One of the longest running organisations in the world is the Black Churches. This is where I have captured the majority of my images. When the Church service starts I have to be discreet whilst capturing the spirit of the worship. The place of worship for Christians is called the Church. Christians believe in God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. In Christian theology this is referred to as the Triune God.

The above image shows how the Bible can be accessed from a mobile phone and not just the traditional big Bible.
The above theme was all about gathering information whilst attending the Church service. This is where a telephoto lens with a large aperture or a high ISO comes in handy. Avoid using flash if possible. If you intend to capture images at a Church ask permission before starting and obey the rules given to you.
The above images capture the gathering of the people. Always capture an image that gives an overall view of the worship service. Follow this up by capturing images of various parts of the Church service. Below are some of the images that I have captured over the last ten years.
I have not limited the images to what goes on inside the Church. Below are images of children enjoying the Church’s summer camp and the Sunday School Day.
Due to COVID19 the Church doors were closed and the only way to worship with your Church was from home via the internet. Thank God the doors are open again.
Did you sit down with a meal to worship?
I captured this image when I was on a visit to the Holy Land.
Christianity is part of Black History. It was not introduced to Africa by the Europeans! In the first century Christianity spread into Egypt, Ethiopia and Eritrea. The Eastern Orthodox Church had started in Africa. In the fifteenth century the Europeans arrived with the mission of Christianity in Africa.
