The installation is the brainchild of Kate Farmer, wife of the church’s minister, Chris Farmer. Kate said: “It stemmed from a vision to see our church interacting with the community in different ways; really to get to know our community better, to know better how to love and serve them as a church.”

She notes that each of the ‘eggs’ was painted by different people of various ages. “We decided to do egg shapes so that children... what do children think of when they think of Easter? They think of Easter eggs,” she explained, “so they’ve spotted the Easter egg shapes and gone over and had a good look.

“We have a storyboard, if you like, to go alongside it so there’s a picture of each egg and a description of what it represents. We put the Easter narrative into seven key moments, or seven key events, and we’ve written about them too so people understand what’s going on in the eggs.”

Kate added: “They’re so striking from the road – they’re really wonderful.”
