Five-light window with the Ascension depicted across all five lights and five scenes below: Christ raising Jairus' daughter, Christ blessing children brought by their mothers, the risen Christ meeting Mary Magdalene, women listening to a preacher (perhaps Paul) by a river, and Dorcas. Above the Ascension is a large roundel showing Christ in Majesty, with an orb and seated on a rainbow, together with seraphim and angels in two further roundels.

in the panel with an apostle preaching, a female figure placed prominently by the riverside is dressed in purple, and may represent Lydia, which would imply that the preacher is Paul. (Acts 16:13-14)
