Norwich church's mural undergoes transformation 

A large mural inside St Stephen’s Church, Norwich, disguising internal building work, has been cleverly transformed from a nativity scene into panels depicting the Easter resurrection.

St Stephen's church's internal building work has meant that for many, many months much of the north aisle has been separated from the rest of the church by a temporary chipboard wall.
Before Christmas St Stephen's children's worker Naomi Tuma organised the painting of a three-sectioned mural on the temporary wall.
Vicar, Rev Canon Madeline Light, said: “Artist Richard Pilch, a member of St John's Timberhill, provided the nativity scene drawings which were projected onto the chipboard and painted by children and adults. The result was spectacular.
“During Lent these drawings were clever converted into a resurrection scene. If you want to see the mural, visit St Stephen's between 10am - 3.30pm on week days. They will be taken down within the next couple of weeks as the building project finishes,” said Madeline.
Pictured above is artist Richard Pilch with the mural and some of his young helpers.
