Apostles Baptising a Family

about 1924

Two-light window with a standing figure laying hands on woman who is part of a group who are kneeling and in an attitude of prayer. A figure opposite faces them, his hand raised, and the dove of the Holy Spirit descends in light.

firm/studio: Robert J. Newbery

Church of St Peter, Goodwick, Pembrokeshire
north wall of the chancel (window number: nII)

Text: 'Until the day break and the shadows flee away' (Song of Solomon 2:17 and 4:6).

Given in memory of Philip Granville Harries Porter (1900-1924), a lieutenant in the Royal Artillery.

The meaning of the scene is not clear, but probably represents a baptism. The standing figures are perhaps Peter (left) and John (right).
