Two-light window. Christopher passing through the waters with the young Christ on his shoulder, and the apostle John is seated among his hearers, a book on the floor. In the roundels above the scenes are the virtues: Faithfulness, Steadfastness, Watchfulness, Patience, Service, Charity and Justice.

technique: stained glass

Church of St David, Neath, Neath Port Talbot
west wall of the north aisle

The faculty for the window (NLW LL/F/584) reveals that the commission for the window was probably initiated in 1933, and the faculty granted in December 1935, suggesting probable completion and installation in 1936. The design of the window is attributed to A.L. Ward, and the cost of the window was £85.

Text below Christopher reads 'I have accepted thy service', the words uttered by Christ, and below John 'Little Children Love one another'.


John is shown at the assembly at Ephesus, where his gospel was thought to have been written. The tracery roundels represent the seven churches from Revelation, with the virtues to which each church was exhorted.
