On the occasion of the dedication of the Pentecost stained glass window in 2011

From left, Miss Kate Allen benefactor of the Pentecost Window, which was designed and made by Deborah Lowe. Standing next to Deborah is the Reverend Canon John Harkin, Vicar St. Mary's Church and Area Dean of Andover Deanery and The Right Reverend Peter Hancock,
who was the Bishop of Basingstoke at the time.

The design of the Pentecost Window features rushing winds and tongues of fire associated with Pentecost.  Swirling areas of blue spiral down the window with flights of doves accentuating this movement, as they descend the winds quieten and transform into patterns of harmony and unity. The red orange and gold represent the red robes worn during Pentecost and the flames in which the Holy Spirit came to earth.

Much use is made of antique glass particularly ‘Streaky’ antique glass which creates soft gradations in the fans of the dove’s wings. Included in the window is a memorial to Kath Damen, who was a faithful member of the church for many years: the image of a swallow ‘hidden’ in the blue glass, which demonstrated the links between us and Africa.
