Broadwas Church - East Window.

This view of the east window clearly shows a wonderful example of stained glass, with the story of Jesus Christ from the conception and birth, through to his death on the cross and his ascension in to Heaven.

Here are the words in each window, left to right bottom and then left to right above that, in bold text.
