The Story of the Triptych

In the first year of the URC three-year ‘Vision4Life’ programme our emphasis was on the Bible. As part of this programme a Bible wall-hanging, now in the form of a Triptych, was proposed on which each of the 66 books of the Bible would be portrayed, each on an A5 piece of coloured felt. Various colours are used to differentiate the specific sections of the Bible canon (Law, History, Poetry, Prophets, Gospels, Acts, Letters, Revelation).

People working on a given book were free to choose the particular theme they wished to illustrate and the means they wished to employ – appliqué, collage, embroidery or other in any combination they wished. The project has been supported by members of all four of our Partnership churches as well as St. Aloysius Roman Catholic Church, St. Aldates Anglican Church and Cowley Road Methodist Church.

All of the panels have been photographed and the photographs will be assembled in an album with explanatory text which will accompany the Triptych wherever it is displayed. The panels have been mounted onto the three big sections of the Triptych, the work having been undertaken at All Saints Convent in Cowley under the guidance of Suellen Pedley and her fellow Cathedral embroiderers to whom very grateful acknowledgment is made.
