Art in the Ashram

Burngreave Ashram has a new painting called Christ in Burngreave: the Lord’s Supper, portraying the Ashram community meal. The four-by-five foot work is a modern version of the Last Supper, in which Christ shares a meal with his disciples.

It was painted by international artist, Ros Norsworthy who specialises in Christian church related artwork. She was commissioned by Reverend Doctor John Vincent after he saw her 40 foot painting ‘The Resurrection’ at Victoria Hall Methodist Church.

The picture took over a year to paint. She has left it up to the public to decide which person represents Christ. She says she finds painting passages from the Bible moving and rewarding. John Vincent has had a brass plaque engraved to hang next to the picture which hangs over the door. Anyone wishing to see the work can visit the Ashram on Spital Hill.

The free Ashram community meal is held every Wednesday at 6pm at the Ashram on Spital Hill and is “totally open door”.
