The Berry Window

Church of St. Bartholomew, Chipping

 

Water

One time source of industrial power through the water wheel. Water is the element used in Baptism which was prefigured when eight souls were saved in the ark recalled here by the raven and the dove.

 

Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour.

The nails and crown of thorns pick out Christ’s cross, hub of the faith, seen here in the wheel as daily work is offered up to God.

 

Fire

Generates steam to drive electrical turbines for modern

industrial power. Cloven tongues like as of fire were seen at

Pentecost when members of the early Church were baptised with the Holy Spirit and so empowered for service.
