This concert is free to attend and no booking is required.


For the Art Lover

We are incredibly pleased to welcome back British painter and art-historian Iain McKillop to Guildford Cathedral with his new exhibition of 27 paintings entitled ‘Through Passion: Stations of the Cross’ for the period of Lent as part of our Art Exhibitions for 2023 this exhibition runs until 10 April.


Using the tradition of the Stations of the Cross, this exhibition invites us to travel with Jesus on his journey to his death and resurrection, and to pause at each image for reflection, prayer and contemplation. However, it is not, however, intended to be primarily a sad journey; although Jesus’ death was tragic, he knew that through his self-sacrifice he could achieve forgiveness, healing, cleansing, freedom, renewal, and peace for humanity by reuniting us with God.


The paintings are displayed in an anti-clockwise direction follow a common tradition in many churches as a way of showing penitence i.e., a formal expression of regret.


Iain has exhibited works in many cathedrals and churches throughout the UK including Guildford Cathedral in 2022. He has also trained in theology and is an ordained Anglican minister.
