Protecting St John's Windows
We did it
On 7th November 2019 we successfully raised £950 with 34 supporters in 28 days

We are raising money to repair damage to our historic east windows which look out onto Peterborough's Cathedral Square, and protect them.

St John's Church is the historic parish church in the centre of Peterborough. It is the backdrop to major events in the city centre and has been serving the people of the city for over 600 years. The stained glass is of historic note - top quality examples of this art. 

They are under threat from damage by ball games - two windows have been broken this year and this means that the glass has to be remade - that means the original, dating from 1880s, is lost forever.

We need to protect the glass from balls and other projectiles by placing metal grilles over them. These are fine mesh. The cost of protecting each window is £1,500.

Any money raised over the amount needed will be restricted for the maintenance of this historic landmark in the centre of the city.

If you'd like to donate via cheque or other means, or have any questions, please get in touch with the parish office at [email protected]
