A church-goer has seen a painting, which took her four months to complete, take pride of place in her place of worship.

Valerie Jones, from Acton, produced the artwork, which features hands releasing a dove, at her home, and it has now been unveiled at St John’s Methodist Church in York Road, Sudbury.

“I have been drawing since I was a child and have always felt a higher power,” said Mrs Jones, who is in her 70s, and is pictured with the Rev John Boardman.
