Three-light window with standing figure of Christ with arms raised. Left-hand light with Nativity and Crucifixion with soldiers; Transfiguration and the Risen Christ with disciples in the right-hand light. Inscription beneath the figure of Christ held by a child angel, with further child angels holding biblical texts.

The window is rich in incidental iconography, for example the Alpha and omega in the traceery lights, a crown within a crown of thorns at the apex of the central light, and the symbols of the Passion appear at the edging of the central light.
