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 is now breaking up; to save this beautiful window we need in the region of £43,000. Some money has already been raised but we still have a long way to go to enable the work to be completed. Time is not on our side as we are advised that the repairs need to be completed before the end of October. If we have strong winds during the winter we could lose the window.

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

Please support us in repairing this window by making a donation, helping to ensure that it remains in good condition for future generations to enjoy.
