In 2019 the Parochial Church Council (PCC) set up the Altar Frontals Commissioning Group to oversee the renewal of our liturgical textiles. These textiles, the principle item of which is the altar frontal, mark the changing seasons of the Church's year and provide a means of expressing the vision and values of our Christian community. The Commissioning Group created a detailed brief and, after a series of interviews, recommended the PCC to appoint the highly experienced textile designer, Polly Meynell. An introduction to Polly's practice and portfolio is provided in this video.
Polly has also prepared a video introducing the proposed design for our Advent/Lent liturgical textiles.
Further images and more detailed notes about the design are available here. Please note that the projected timescale for completion is now Lent 2021, rather than Advent 2020, as proposed in these notes.
