A Worldwide Parish

The entrance to St John the Divine is by the North door on Vassal Road. In the porch, look up and you will see the Korean Icon, a large 20th-Century painting which was painted by members of the Brotherhood of St Seraphim in Walsingham, Norfolk. It commemorates the foundation of the Anglican Church in Korea in 1890 by Bishop Corfe. The work was designed in the style of an Orthodox sanctuary screen called an iconostasis, which is traditionally covered in many small icons of saints and patriarchs.
