New Icon of Christ the Prince of Peace

The church of Christ the Prince of Peace in Weybridge is about to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of its consecration. To mark this special occasion an imposing icon has been specially commissioned and now hangs in the Church.

The icon is in the Coptic style of sacred art and depicts Christ as Pantokrator (The Almighty). Our Lord is seated on a throne with His right hand raised in blessing and a book in His left hand bears the text "Peace I give you". The icon was created by Dr Stephane Rene, a leading exponent of the Neo-Coptic school of iconography.
