The sanctuary windows comprise five two-light windows. The subjects are the Annunciation, the Adoration of the Magi, the Crucifixion, the three women at the empty tomb, and the risen Christ meeting Mary Magdalene in the garden. The three women at the empty tomb encounter two angels, one seated and one standing. A further angel is depicted above, and there are roundels of King David and the prophet Hosea (Osee) below.
