This is a rather special ‘snapshot’ of life in a South London parish which saw photographer Jim Grover accompany his local Church of England minister Kit Gunasekera as he went about his duties over a year.

The forty photographs on view were selected by curator Katy Barron from the more than fifteen thousand images Jim took. They show service, community, fellowship, laughter, concern and spirituality things that are part of daily life in a parish and to me there was, to quote from the hymn ‘Dear Lord and Father of Mankind’, a sense of that still, small voice of calm.
