Stained Glass in Christ The Saviour, Ealing

One example inside the church

Outside of the church

Having lived in Ealing for many years I think my recent visit to 'Christ the Saviour' on The Broadway in Ealing was I think my first time inside.

In fact the glass in the church is fairly contemporary and does not follow the tradition of  3 windows showing New testament, Old Testament and Benefactor but colour and symbolism is used as tradition requires.

I mentioned that I found out (a little) about Stained Glass at the weekend by participating in a one day CityLit course - as a result of this I can see some  the  significance in elements of the windows.

The external wall (shown) gives little indication of the glass as it is seen from within.

In fact I used the image editor within digiKam to widen the dynamic range so that some detail can be seen in the 'blacks'.
