TQ3477 : Saints Peter & Paul

taken 8 years ago, near to Camberwell, Southwark, Great Britain

Saints Peter & Paul
Saints Peter & Paul
The south door of Our Lady of Sorrows church, Bird in Bush Road - for other views see TQ3477 : Franciscan church and hall, Peckham and TQ3477 : Our Lady of Sorrows, Bird in Bush Road. It is not clear why the mosaic in the tympanum is of Saints Peter and Paul rather than St Mary to whom the church is dedicated.

The wording in the mosaic is "Thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church" - the words of Jesus when he gave Simon his "Christian name" of Cephas / Peter (meaning Rock).
