Commission For Mission's first commission was dedicated today as the Rt. Revd. David Hawkins (Bishop of Barking and Patron of Commission For Mission), Rt. Revd. Mgr. David Manson (Vicar General, Brentwood Diocese) and Revd. Roy Jackson (Superintendent Minister, Romford Methodist Circuit) jointly dedicated the new St Luke's Chapel at Queen's Hospital, Romford.
The Chapel currently contains two paintings by Henry Shelton, which are our first completed commission; a Crucifixion which forms the Chapel's altarpiece and a eucharistic painting entitled Do this in rememberance of me. Through a different commission, the Chapel also features windows by glass artist Caroline Richardson.
In his address Bishop David praised the staff at Queen's Hospital for seeing and seizing the opportunity to convert an unused waiting room into this Chapel and thanked the artists for their work in helping to create a place of peace and prayer.
