The Reredos

In 1909, the beautiful Reredos behind the altar at the East end of the Church was erected as a memorial to the daughter of Sir Arthur and Lady Halkett of Pitfirrane. It is constructed of solid oak. The central panel illustrates the Church’s teaching about the Eucharist, with two angels represented as gazing up in adoration to the sacred monogram ‘I.H.S.”, which emits scintillating rays of glory. The flowers at their feet suggest that the angels are standing on earth. The whole picture sets forth the true ideal of worship, which is further suggested by the only inscription on the Reredos: “Holy, Holy, Holy.”

The new painting of the rear wall of the church took the red from the Reredos as it’s inspiration.

We have many beautiful windows all with their own unique history.
