The Sanctuary Wall

The entire end wall in the sanctuary area is finished in brick in shades of grey and pink. The bricks are skillfully arranged to create a sense of light at the centre lower part of the wall surrounding the tabernacle and the crucifix. This sense of light is enhanced by the natural light coming through the opaque colourless glass of the skylights in the sanctuary. This has the effect of automatically drawing the eyes downwards to focus on the altar, tabernacle and crucifix. The wall is deliberately left undecorated so as not to hinder this effect. The effect has been enhanced by the inclusion of a tapestry.
