The Icons

Many have commented on the ‘stunning’ icons that have formed the backdrop to our Masses at St John’s. The latest two have, again, been created by Ian Knowles, a well-known artist who established a charity in Bethlehem, Palestine teaching local Christian the art of Iconography.

Ian is back in England now and you can learn more about him and his work on this website.
You can also read something about St Editha of Tamworth /Polesworth depicted in one of our icons. The other icon is of St Elizabeth, mother of St John the Baptist.
