A New Window

Dedication of a New Window
On All Saints Day, this year Sunday 1st November with the sun streaming through, the first new window at St. Laurence's since 1930, was dedicated to the glory of God. The window which was given in memory of Jennifer Woolliscrft with the inscription written by her family sums up so much of Jennifer's life "In dedication to Jennifer Woolliscroft who gave and received great support and love within this church from 1966 to 2012." The window depicts the local country side with its blue bells, pastures and woodland that she and many others so love.
The window has been fitted into one of the oldest parts of the church in an opening which for over two hundred years lost from view. When the stone work was discovered in the early 1970s it was able to bring much needed light into quite a dark corner of the chancel. However the large plain glass which was then installed had become cracked and very draughty. This lovely new window has maintained the sense of light with some clear glass within its structure.
It was lovely to welcome her large extended family to this very special service. We hope and pray it will continue to be enjoyed, give light and glory to God for century’s to come.
