The Windows east and west
The east window with its links the the Church of England

The original tracery of the East window was retained when the Chancel was extended in 1885 and is in the ‘Elizabethan’ style. The window comprises of five sets of stain glass panels. The two central panels depict Jesus bathed in light and holding a crown whilst to his left is a depiction of St. George, the patron saint of England who is shown holding the English flag with the slain dragon at his feet. The outer panels show smaller depictions of the Welsh saints, Dewi, Teilo, Illtyd and Dubricus. Running across the bottom of the window is a memorial to the men that perished in the Great War (1914 – 1918). Installed in 1921 it provides a stark reminder of the sacrifices made.

The hands are raised aloft in praise and adoration

The stained glass window in St, Helen’s Chapel, held within an oak frame, was designed by John Petts RCA whilst a member of the congregation. and intended as a gift to the church. However, he died shortly after the design was completed. Installed in 1998, it now serves as a fitting commemoration to a much loved and respected man. The window is made up of numerous hands held aloft towards heaven in praise and adoration. Some hands take the form of the dove of peace which in turn become a circle in which are to be found the opening words of Psalm 148, ‘Praise the Lord’. And in the background, there is the cross, coloured red as a reminder of Christ’s sacrifice.
