A four-light window featuring the healing of the lame man at the Beautiful Gate, with four additional scenes beside it and biblical texts: (clockwise) the calling of James and John, John accompanies Mary away from the foot of the cross, John and Peter in prison, John writing his revelation on Patmos.

Biblical texts: 'Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.'
'He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets. And straightway he called them.'
'Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.'
'And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.'
'And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.'

Given in remembrance of John Logan.
