At the end of 2017, St Stephen’s Church decided to raise funds to repair, preserve, conserve and protect its William Morris-designed windows for future generations to enjoy. A total of £85,000 is required for this ambitious initiative, of which 95% has been raised.
The repairs are being carried out by Holy Wells Glass, a firm that has conducted similar prestigious restoration projects at Winchester, Exeter, Wells and Worcester Cathedrals.
In February 2019, the ‘Tree of Jesse’ window was removed by Holy Wells Glass and taken to the firm’s headquarters in Wells. It is anticipated that the window will return to Guernsey in August of this year; at which time the other necessary repairs will be made to the William Morris windows above the High Altar.
Thanks to all who have already contributed, and to others for any support that you can give to this important project!
