Windows of All Saints

These are selections from All Saints Church windows which are so beautiful, but hard to capture that film.  Please ask for permission if you'd like to use any of these photos to avoid Copyright problems. This first photo is a black and white study of Mary and Jesus from the south window to the right of the Altar.

Original Plans
These wonderful drawings are the actual, original sketches of 3 of All Saints stained glass windows!  I can't tell you how excited I was to see these! They are a tangible link with our past.
My special thanks for my friend Chris who helped me to get these photographs. 

The first is instantly recognisable as the main East window over our Altar. This show the visit of Gabriel to Mary, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection in the centre panels with the ascended Jesus at the very top on his throne. Looking across the other panels from the left are the Prophets, Apostles, Martyrs and members of the Holy Church. This might make it easier to identify the rest of the  Saints!

This is our parable window from the North side of the church, overlooking All Saints Road. It shows the stories of the Good Samaritan, the Ten Foolish Virgins, The Talents and the Prodigal Son. The actual window is not quite as shown here but the theme is the same.

This was the plan for the West window at the bottom of the aisle which is now plain glass. What a shame the funds were never found to complete this beautiful design. Topped by the Crucifixion, this window would have shown the life of Jesus, starting in the bottom left corner with his birth and travelling across the bottom with his presentation at the temple, Epiphany and his life as a child in Nazareth. Also shown here in the drawing is his Baptism by John, the Sermon on the Mount, Palm Sunday and the Last Supper. What a beautiful window this would have made!
