Stained Glass


The function of stained glass is to tell stories of Scripture, or to illustrate the lives of the Saints. In consequence, as a small child once put it, “a Saint lets in the light”. The ability to read stained glass depends first upon a knowledge of the Scripture, and that in turn can help to make the story more memorable.

We hope you like the stained glass that has been gifted to our church over the years. If you would like to read more detail about the Christian witness of the saints depicted, or indeed the donor families, please visit us and purchase a church guidebook.
