Last Supper


St Martin le Grand on Coney Street is an 11th century church so this very modern depiction of the last supper inside the church was rather a surprise. Dating from 1967 it is  by Frank Roper. Designed as a reredos for the altar it is made from gold-painted aluminium. What do you think of it? It is a little too 'home made' for my tastes and was originally hidden away at the back of the church but is now on display under a modern stained glass window. The church suffered badly from bomb damage during WW2 hence the modern interior.

  1. not sure I like it, though maybe if the spaces had been filled in to look more like stained glass it would look more suitable?

  3. The last supper has always brought me joy but this one kind of feels eery. I do love the stained glass.
