2014 Michael Churton Taylor Memorial Windows

The Michael Churton Taylor Memorial Windows were installed in June 2014


Situated in the South Porch these windows were dedicated by Trevor, Bishop of Dover on 6 July 2014. Their 21st century contemporary design complements the windows within the main building. Their vibrant colours have transformed the previously rather drab porch, in particular when the sun is shining through them and reflecting the colours onto the floor.

In submitting her initial designs and ideas to the PCC, Alison Eaton explained her unique work:


"I have used the subject of the Creation for the basis of my design. Each light depicts one of the days of Creation.


1st                   The division of light from darkness

2nd                  The division of the waters from the firmament

3rd                   The creation of dry land and vegetation

4th                   The creation of the sun, moon and stars

5th                   The creation of the birds and fishes

6th                   The creation of man and woman


The seventh day, the day of rest and prayer is through the doors opposite: the Church.


A hand coming through the clouds at the top of day 1 and day 6 light depicts the hand of God at work.


Within the third day’s design - the creation of the vegetation, I have used a tea plant with white flowers to show part of the life of Michael Churton Taylor. Within the fifth day’s design - the creation of birds, I have incorporated seagulls and the Martello tower to show the Church’s life as coastal parish. The rainbow within days two and three is there to portray the Rainbow Centre, which the church is closely linked to.

I feel the mixture of coloured glass and clear glass (central areas) and tinted glass (surrounding borders) means that the porch will be well lit generally but on sunny days the area will be flooded with colour."
