about 1960

Three-light window. Christ appears to Mathew who is seated at a writing desk. A seascape is shown in the background.

technique: stained glass

firm/studio: Goddard & Gibbs
designer: Maud Francis Eyston Sumner

Christ Church, Prestatyn, Flintshire
south wall of the south aisle

Given in 1960 in memory of Henry Gibson Johnson (died 1959) by his sister Elizabeth Helen Johnson. He had been churchwarden from 1939 until his death (information kindly provided by Sue Christou from the church archives).

The close similarity in style suggests that the window was also made by Goddard and Gibbs to the design of Maud Sumner.


The scene could illustrate either the calling of Matthew or Christ appearing to him as he writes his gospel.
