Sistine Chapel Ceiling in Sussex

The Creation of Adam as painted by Deacon Gary Bevans
English Martyrs, Goring-by-sea is now open for viewing our their ever-popular ceiling. This year also marks the 450th anniversary of the completion of the original in the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo.  

GaryBevans, who completed the copy about twenty years ago, has been serving our parish as Deacon for the last four years. Gary was inspired by a visit to Rome and the Sistine Chapel, but unlike Michelangelo Gary completed the ceiling alone and without the assistance of others.

They are open for viewing Tuesdays to Fridays from 10am to 4pm.  Those who have not already visited us have missed a world famous work of art – the only painted copy of Michelangelo’s masterpiece in the world!  

If you would like to bring a group and have an explanatory talk, please ring 01903 506890 (Church Repository) or 01903 14224 (Parish Office) No booking needed for individual.
