The theme of the left hand window is Christ as the Bestower of Peace.
The central composition shows Christ stilling the tempest, with St Nicholas, patron saint of sailors and children, to the left and, to the right, the landing of St Augustine, the first Archbishop of Canterbury. Above are the pelican and the phoenix, symbols of self-sacrifice and resurrection. Below, and most famously, is the depiction of the Mary Stanford lifeboat disaster, which occurred on 15 November 1928, with the loss of the entire crew. Their names are recorded on the window. This was the first Strachan window to be completed and it was unveiled in July 1929.
The theme of the central window is Christ as Healer. The central composition depicts Christ at the Pool of Siloam, with the Seal of Winchelsea below. To the left is the conversion of St Paul, with the vision of Christ above and the parable of the sower below. To the right is St Giles with the hind, with the reaper below. The tracery contains the Ark, as the symbol of the Church.
The theme of the right hand window is Christ as Teacher, which is depicted in the central composition, with the reverse of the Seal of Winchelsea below. To the left is St Leonard visiting prisoners, with the parable of the Prodigal Son below. To the right is St Richard of Chichester, relieving the sick and poor, with the parable of the Good Shepherd below.
High up on the west wall is a small window glazed in plain glass. This allows a beam of sunlight into the Church and gives some impression of how the Church would have been without its present stained glass.
The six windows previously described, along with the organ were dedicated on 9 May 1931 by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Cosmo Lang, in a memorable service, the musical part being led by the organist and choir of the Temple Church.More – North Aisle
