A Story Through Windows

The season of the church year, or Christian year, are re-enactment of the life of Jesus Christ from birth through life, death, and resurrection, to the birth of the church and its witness in the world today.
Symbols and colours help lift up the meaning of each season. This is reflected in our Stained Glass Windows.
Each colour consists of side panels with the colours of the church year.
The rainbow, reflecting the hope and promise of God’s loving presence with us always, is in each window.
The cross is also in each window. This is a reminder that Christ is the centre of our faith and of our faith community.
Each of the windows contains symbols pertaining to the specific season of the church year.
May we be strengthened and encouraged by the story of faith and witness as told through these windows.
