"They brought young children to Christ"

Goddard & Gibbs


St. Martin's Church, West Acton

This, the northernmost of the west lancet windows, shows Jesus with one child (holding flowers) in his arms, and another beside him, led, it seems, by his older sister. Again, the pastel colours of the background and frame create an iridescent effect. This window is in memory of a minister's wife, who had lived to a good age and had died in 1964.
