St Peter's Church, Cambridge, Glazing Repairs
St Peter’s is the smallest church in Cambridge tucked away off Castle Street and is a haven of tranquillity from the busy streets around it. It was originally built in the eleventh century and traces of its Saxon past survive in the form of two lovely carved doorways and stone font.
The church was rebuilt in Georgian times and and the East Chancel stained glass window is by a local Victoria artist, Frederick Richard Leech. It has floral patterns and three roundels refer to Christ (Alpha and Omega, Star of David, Chi-Rho Cross). Frederick Leach came to be regarded as Cambridges’ finest master artworkman. He worked with the designer William Morris and architect George Bodley, an exponent of English gothic revival.
Unfortunately in 2020, the window was broken and we need to raise £5,345 for the repair. Please consider making a donation, the volunteers have raised £520 but we still need your help.
