Rory Young worked on a model cross prior to carving the real thing
A church in Gloucestershire will be celebrating Easter this year with the unveiling of a new cross by the Bishop of Tewkesbury.
The cross has been carved by Cirencester sculptor and designer Rory Young, and it incorporates the word "peace" within the crown of thorns.
Mr Young has already undertaken projects at Gloucester Cathedral, York Minster and Southwark Cathedral.
St Peter's Church in Windrush takes its name from the river on which it stands.
Currently there is only one fragment left of a 19th Century stone cross on the church's roof.
"I had long wanted to see a new cross on the church that spoke of our confidence for the future," said the Reverend David Ackerman.
"Following a generous donation, I was thrilled that Rory agreed to the commission."
The image on the cross faces east and shows Christ triumphant over death.
Mr Ackerman added: "I often say to people that when future generations look back they will ask what mark did we leave on our churches to show what they meant to us.
"We will place an image of the risen Lord on Easter Day, and you can't really better that."
