The Baptism of Jesus by Rosalind Hore is to find a permanent home in 2010 at St Edmund's Tyseley. The painting is to be donated to the Birmingham-based church by Jonathan Evens as a memorial to his father, Revd. Phil Evens, who spent 10 years in Tyseley as Vicar of St Edmunds.
The painting was chosen by the congregation from a selection of works by commission4mission artists which were provided by Jonathan.
Revd. Steve Simcox, Vicar of St Edmunds, says, "I think this painting will be very special in St Edmund's Church. We plan to mount the painting ... so the prominent thing that is seen as you enter the church is the painting."
