A series of images of hope were projected onto the facade of Lichfield Cathedral over the Easter Holy Week, to help inspire others during the Covid-19 crisis.
Christ's death and resurrection, messages of hope and support for the NHS were among the art images displayed.
The images were created by Luxmuralis Artistic Director and Lichfield Cathedral’s artist in Residence Peter Walker.
Cathedral teams here joined many across the country in offering alternative ways of marking Easter during the lockdown. In Lichfield they held a digital prayer wall and broadcast services live over social media, to help bring communities marking Easter together.
"Every Cathedral stands as an icon of hope, sanctuary and assurance. Lichfield is no exception - It’s our job to make sure the Cathedral can still get its message out during this period of restriction and lock-down.
"Although we are currently unable to welcome visitors to the Cathedral, it is our intention to offer support to our community, bring our services to people online and through these beautiful projected images, continue to let this 800 year building offer hope and inspiration".
"Art has always been something that continues during times of crisis. It is uplifting to see the thousands of innovative and creative ways by which people at home around the world are responding to this crisis.
All the images were released on the cathedral's social media each night, and the Cathedral clarified that the image projections weren't public performances to attend.
