South Aisle Window – Feed My Sheep
The final window shows the Appearance of the Risen Jesus by the Lake. This was dedicated in memory of Sam and Hannah Fitton in 1922.
Jesus charges St Peter to “Feed My Sheep” John chap 21 v16
In a letter to the vicar at the time the designer, wrote a description of the scene design.
The charge of St Peter shows the scene of the sea shore, the coals of the fire, the fish, the other disciples; on the scroll above our Lord are the words ‘Feed my Sheep’ and the angel above holds a scroll bearing the words from Psalm 23 I am the Good Shepherd I lay down my life for the sheep; the wounds of Christ in the hands and the feet of the Risen Christ.
The two Fitton windows were designed by Herbert William Bryans (1856-1925). He established a stained glass studio initially with Geoffrey Webb as Bryans and Webb. His motif, the running dog can be seen in this window.
