The three panel window in the west gable of the church was installed by the congregation as a memorial to all those members and adherents who made the supreme sacrifice in the Great War – 1914 – 1918.
The left hand window has as its theme the “Call to Service” and incorporates into its design the text from Matthew 4 v 19 and 20: “Follow Me – and they straightway left their nets and followed Him.”
The centre window has as its theme “The Answer to the Call” and incorporates the text from John 15 v 13. “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
The right hand window has as its theme “The Final Triumph” and includes in it the text from St. Luke, 24 v 36: “Peace be with you” and from Revelation 2 v 10: “Be thou faithful unto Death and I will give thee a crown of Life.”



On Sunday 12th October 1947 a brass plaque containing the names of those members of the congregation and adherents who died or were killed on active service in the Second World War was unveiled and dedicated. The plaque bears this inscription.
