All the crosses have a story. They were gathered by the Rev. dr. Marc Nikkel amongst Dinka Christians living in Southern Sudan between 1987-1997. Marianne and Robin Anker-Petersen worked with him at Bishop Gwynne College in Southern Sudan. He died of stomach cancer at the age of 50, bequeathing many of his crosses to the Bield. They say he always ended his letters with “My times are in his hands. All at the end is harvest.”
Upstairs in study, African crosses line the wall.
