Visual Theology is committed to projects that explore the relationship between the spiritual imagination and visual culture. We are grateful for the occasional support of our institutional partners and sponsors, who are often generous with their support-in-kind.

However we – Sheona and Madeleine – remain an independent, personally motivated, two-person enterprise seeking to make things happen on limited means. We give of our own time to all our projects, and we need your help to make them happen.

Please consider supporting us. Your financial contribution would help us to:

  • Engage artists in commissions and exhibitions
  • Secure international speakers for our conferences
  • Produce publications and zines with high-quality, copyright-cleared images.

If you would like to make a donation of any amount, however great or small, we would be overwhelmingly grateful — every contribution is greatly appreciated!

Previous partners and sponsors:

Tyndale Fellowship, Cambridge

In association with Tyndale House, Visual Theology produced Issue 3 of our zine for the Tyndale Fellowship Old Testament Study Group conference in 2021. Tyndale Fellowship supported the printing and postage costs for its publication.

The Bishop Otter Trust, Chichester

The Bishop Otter Trust underwrote the catering and speaker costs for our first event at The Bishop’s Palace, Chichester, 2018. The role of Bishop Otter Scholar, also supported by the Trust, was held by Sheona Beaumont from 2017-2020.

Berwick Church, East Sussex

St Michael and All Angels Church, in Berwick, is most well-known for its extensive twentieth-century paintings by Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and Quentin Bell, which were commissioned during the Second World War by Bishop Bell. The PCC donated to Visual Theology in 2020, when we contributed a research article to their Outreach and Engagement programme.

The Centre for Arts @ the Sacred at King’s (ASK), in the Department of Theology & Religious Studies, supported our projects in Chichester in 2018, through the mentorship of Professor Ben Quash.
