I helped rejuvenate this devastated church. It was a terrific honour and remains my commission with the biggest number of windows all made by me in one building. I competed against four other stained glass artists and won the commission to design and make five windows for St Nicholas Church in Leamington Spa. The church had burnt down and Caroe Architects redesigned and rebuilt it with me supplying the windows. I featured on a Songs of Praise TV program talking about these windows. It was a privilege to be part of the rebirth of this church, which is now beautiful and full of people doing fruitful activities.
The Resurrection window above the old altar symbolizes rebirth and renewal.
The blue prayer window was made entirely of fused glass bricks and suggests resting in the presence of God, recieving from Him without striving. The orange rocks represent people who sit still and and un-striving while God’s power and blessings fall on them and swirl around them. People’s prayers go up to the Trinity symbols in the traceries and God’s answers and blessings go down onto the people. In the traceries the wave on the left symbolizes the Holy Spirit, the mountain in the centre symbolizes God the Father and the droplet in the shape of a crown symbolizes Christ the King
There is a memorial window for those who fell in the wars. It has a detachable panel so that the list of names can be reprinted and replaced.
There is a window depicting St Nicholas made of a combination of fused and flat glass.
At the very top above the new altar is a 75ft wide triangular clear glass panel which has been sandblasted with a simple cross and Alpha and Omega. It was then encapsulated in double glazing by Saper Glass in Barking.
