These windows were designed and constructed in the studios of J Ashton & Co in Sydney in 1904. They were placed in the foyer at the entrance to St Andrew’s, the gift of members of the Building Committee when the church was built in 1904/5.
The inscriptions read:
Panel A:John Calvin born 1509 died 1564
Panel B:Nec Tamen Consumebatur
Panel C:John Knox born 1505 died 1572
