The Gateway Baptist Church in Wellington Street has expanded with an arts studio.
Artway Studio holds a rotating roster of 10 Christian artists.
The artists will work in the studio at designated times, with the community invited to come in, watch them work and ask questions, as well as to view and buy the exhibited paintings.
Pastor Noel Eagling said it was a novel way for the church to connect with the community.
"We had talented people within the church, and with other churches that have joined with us, who were happy to use their talents and share their gifts with other people," he said.
"We're really interested in communicating with people, so we're using art as a way of sharing our faith: to share Christianity," he said.
"All the people taking part are Christians, and their artwork is an expression of their faith, of what they believe. So that's why we want people to be able to be able to hear the story behind the works."
The official opening of Artway Studio was attended by over 100 people, and City of Launceston mayor Albert van Zetten gave the opening remarks.
Artists who may be interested in participating are invited to get in touch with the Gateway Baptist Church - but are reminded the commitment extends to creating art at the studio at regular times, not merely exhibiting works.
Mr Eagling said the space was for people who wanted to express their faith through creativity.
"God is the creator of the universe - He's the most creative being we know," he said.
"I think creativity is something the church has ignored for a lot of time, and probably the only art we've been really involved in is music.
"But there are people who aren't musical, but in their relationship with God they love sketching, or painting, or drawing.
"So, it's a way of working with our faith and a way of connecting with God."
In terms of visitors, Mr Eagling said the artists were open to talking about anything - not just their art.
"It's a ministry of the church, and we're keen for people to come in and talk," he said.
"If people have got issues or something that they want to share with somebody, we'll be there to listen as well.
"One of the things we are going to look at doing through the studio is art therapy - whether that be for anger issues, things like that.
"Doing art can be a way of relaxing and allowing peace to come into your life."
Artway Studio is open Tuesday to Friday, 11am to 3pm.
