You may already know about the problems associated with our beautiful East Window. Our volunteer church cleaners spotted that the glass in the window was coming away from its supports. As a result the window has been inspected by our church architect and major repairs are necessary. 

The saddle bars which attach the windows to the stone are rusty and causing damage to the mullions and jams. Repairs will involve the removal of the glass, the replacement of much of the lead tracery and any cracked glass as well as general cleaning of all glass. At the same time the saddle bars will be replaced with a non-ferrous metal and any damaged stonework repaired.  

The overall cost of this project is in the region of £22,000. This is on top of the £63,000 that we pay to the Diocese as our Parish Share, plus the general running costs of our Church. Although we have sufficient money in the bank to pay the bill we are keen to ensure that our accounts remain in good shape. There is a possibility of a grant of 10% from the Oxford Historic Churches Fund but the remaining £20,000 will have to be raised locally.   

We very much hope that you will wish to be associated with this project by making a donation towards the cost
