Words below the stained glass window to the Mother’s Union

The Mothers’ Union panel of stained glass is dedicated to Mary Thorpe of Burkes Road, Beaconsfield who died age 61. The Mother’s Union is an international Christian membership movement supporting families and communities in need of support in the UK. It’s worldwide since 1876 and goes back over a century in Stoke Poges. Members are active in 84 countries offering Christian care for families, regardless of faith or background. Close to St Giles’ church within the Church of England – Diocese of Oxford, it has supported the Clewer Initiative to stop modern slavery, e.g. at car washes.

The long high panel of stained glass is called, ‘The Love of God’. Made in 2000, it is one of the most vibrant window in St Giles’ church. The artist was Richard Molineux and made by David Wasley who is a Fellow of The British Society of Master Glass Painters.
