East Window

 

This East Window was erected in 1955 to a design by Lawrence Lee.

 

The original window has this inscription:

 

"The above East Window was erected in memory of Col. Charles Wetherall K.C.T. of the 13th Dragoons. Born 23rd July 1795. Died 2nd October, 1868 "

 

The outer windows depict scenes of Peter with the following biblical references:

 

"And now behold loose thee this day from the chains"  [Jeremiah 40:4]

 

"Thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God" [Acts 10:31]

 

"Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Feed my sheep" [John 21:16]

 

"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live" [Galatians 2:20]

Windows - East - St Peter 215 Windows - East Window 2 429

The centre panel shows Christ in Glory with the Book of Seven Seals from John the Divine's Book of Revelation on his knee under his left hand.

 

On the left of Christ is Mary and to the right Peter.  Peter holds an image of our church.

 

The arms and symbols below the figures are as follows;

The arms of the Diocese of Southwark; Lillies (for our Lady); Seraphim; the Crossed Keys (for St Peter); the arms of the Diocese of Rochester.  The church was in the Diocese of Rochester before the Diocese of Southwark was formed in 1907.

 

At the bottom of the window are ruined buldings - representing the destruction of the Second World War.
