A pair of complementing windows above a door. The left window 'Joy' features the text 'Gloria in excelsis Deo'. It celebrates the life of Christ and depicts a sunburst of light, the star of Bethlehem and symbolic flora and fauna associated with Christ's birth, teaching, death and resurrection. The right window contains the text 'The peace of God which passeth all understanding' from the book of Common Prayer. It is centred on a cross from which emanates the solar system, a waterfall and baptismal shell and symbolic plants and flowers.
