The Sanctuary of St Edmund's Tyseley
Jonathan Evens recently delivered Rosalind Hore's painting The Baptism of Jesus to St Edmund's Tyseley where it is to be hung as a memorial to his father, Revd. Phil Evens, a previous Vicar of the church.
The present incumbent, Revd. Steve Simcox, was thrilled to receive the painting and showed Jonathan where it is planned that the painting will be hung once the area has been redecorated. Their intention is that it will be the first thing seen by visitors to the church on entry to the worship space. Jonathan also discussed the possibility of a service of dedication for the painting which would incorporate service resources and other materials written and used by his father.
