AN art exhibition showing the story of Easter goes on display in Neyland next week.

The Way of the Cross tells the story from the Upper Room and the last Supper to the Empty Tomb of Easter Sunday.

It is being held at St Clement’s Church Neyland from Tuesday April 15 to Saturday April 19.

It is an exhibition by local artists in a wide range of styles, from painting, collage, weaving, clay, flowers, and photography to much more, depicting the events of the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life on earth.

As well as the straightforward enjoyment of the art works, organisers hope it will give people an insight into and broaden peoples' understanding of the dramatic events that make up the Easter story.

The church will be open for people to look round from 10.30am to 4.30pm, except Good Friday 2.30 – 4.30pm. Every evening there will be a short service of Compline at 7pm in the church and each day there will be morning coffee and afternoon tea available next door in the hall, complete with a range of delicious homemade cakes and scones.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday there will also be homemade soup, and bread and cheese lunches available from noon.
