Local artist at church member Felicity Prazak was commissioned during lockdown to paint a series of Stations of the Cross, a traditional devotional subject featuring the story of Jesus’ last hours from his condemnation by Pontius Pilate to his entombment. An additional fifteenth Station includes the resurrection.

The Stations are often walked by Christians, moving around the church from “station” to “station”, meditating on the significance of each moment of Jesus’s final journey. They are most often used in the season of Lent.

The Stations of the Cross painted by Felicity are inspired by Byzantine art and iconography are will be displayed in the main in the Gallery of St Mary’s, being brought down for use in weeks before Easter. However, they are currently on show in body of the church and will remain so for the summer weeks. Visitors are most welcome throughout the week. The Church is open weekday mornings and for Sunday worship.

A devotional booklet is also available for purchase at the back of the Church, priced £3.75.
