Image Description

Image reproduced by kind permission of Julie Archer. From the church's own website The E window replaces one destroyed by enemy action in the second world war and is dedicated to the memory of Thomas Mashiter. It shows the arms of the Dioceses of Rochester, London, Chelmsford and St Albans and those of the county of Essex and the Urban District of Hornchurch. From L to R this window shows: Edward the Confessor in front of Westminster Abbey holding in his left hand a ring, referring to the legend of Have-a-ring. Next St Andrew, in the centre Christ standing on the shores of a lake, next St Peter and on the extreme right William of Wykeham with New College Oxford in the background. The theme is "Follow me and I will make you fishers of men". The window was designed by Gerald Smith and made by the Nicholson Stained Glass Studio on 1954.
