EAST WINDOW APPEAL All Saints Church, Clifton Beds

The East Window is a focal point in our church and is much admired by everyone especially our wedding couples where this forms the background to their wedding day.

The stonework for the East Window dates from the 14th century, the glass is a fine example of the work of Reginald Farrar-Bell and was installed in the 1950s. The image itself is of biblical significance as it reminds us of Jesus’ Ascension into heaven.

Over the years, the external stonework has been eroded and was breaking up; to save this beautiful window we needed in the region of £48,700. We were advised that time was not on our side and that the repairs needed to be completed before the end of October 2017. With encouraging indications of support we embarked on the repairs and thanks to the magnificent response to our appeals, added to by fundraising events & grants we amazingly reached the target, and were able to make payment on the final invoice by mid October.

Without these repairs winter storms could easily have damaged the stained glass and allow weather damage to the interior of the church, including the Father Willis organ. Costs would then have escalated beyond our reach.

Thank you for your generosity in supporting us with the task of repairing the window by making a donation. It ensure that the window remains in good condition for future generations to enjoy.
