AAPEAL FOR RESTORATION OF THE LEADED GLASS WINDOWS - Severus - 20-09-2007
PARISH OF ST. MARY & ST. FELIX, BABINGLEY
APPEAL BY THE DEACONS FOR
RESTORATION OF THE LEADED GLASS WINDOWS
Prior to its use for Orthodox worship in May 2000, St. Felix Church at Babingley in Norfolk suffered a period of neglect and vandalism which included damage to its windows. These are simple, attractive intersecting tracery with tinted lozenge-shaped leaded-lights. Although these have been repaired, there are three mainlight panels which have been replaced by plain glass whilst some twelve other smaller panes are cracked and damaged.
It is our desire to restore all these panes to their original condition, but as this is skilled work we will need to engage a stained-glass specialist rather than an ordinary glazier. The estimate we have received for this work to be completed is ?1,500 ? a relatively modest sum, but one which is currently beyond the means of our little congregation. We are issuing this appeal to our members and friends with the blessing of our Bishop, Abba Seraphim. Donations should be sent to St. Felix Window Appeal, 56 Low Road, Congham, Norfolk, PE32 1AE. and cheques made payable to ?Babingley Parish ? British Orthodox Church?
