A special exhibition is set to feature on a beloved national television show.

The Stations of the Cross Exhibition at St Peter’s Church in Eype will be shown on BBC Songs of Praise on Palm Sunday, March 25.

The crew visited the church on Wednesday, a sunny, cold day before the snow arrived, and interviewed the Reverend Philip Ringer and several artists, and some shots with visitors looking at the paintings. They also went out and about around Bridport filming some of the locations featured in the paintings.

The paintings were done by members of the Bridport Art Society.

The art society went on a walk of witness in Bridport.

The Stations of the Cross graphically depict the various interactions Jesus has along his final journey to Calvary. Fifteen local artists produced the stations, each set against a different local backdrop, and many using contemporary figures.

The exhibition, arranged under the auspices of Churches Together in Bridport and the Eype Centre for the Arts, continues at weekends in Lent and is open from 2pm to 5pm, and then every afternoon during Holy Week, March 26 until and including Easter Monday, April 2.

The Bishop of Sherborne, the Right Reverend Karen Gorham, will lead a Stations of the Cross Service in Eype at 4.30pm on Palm Sunday, March 25, to which all are welcome.
