The main window behind the altar is in memorial of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. It shows Christ enthroned in majesty, reminding us that all earthly and temporal authority ultimately bows to Christ’s eternal majesty.

The second is on the south side of the church and shows the story of Jesus being presented in the Temple, the event we celebrate at Candlemas (2nd February). Mary and Joseph are there as well as Simeon and Anna.
