Before they Call I will Answer
and While They Are Yet Speaking I Will Hear.
The stained glass
window above the altar is in memory of Mr. Charles Clarke and was
paid for by his widow. The central compartment is a representation
of Christ on the Cross, to the left are two apostles and to the
right Mary, the mother of Jesus, and Mary Magdalene. Immediately
below the window is the reredos, divided into three and surrounded
by a cornice of Derbyshire marble, with pilasters in relief. "The
panels of the recesses are ornamented, the central one with a cross,
those at the sides with geometrical designs, the effect of the
whole being heightened by bosses of local spars and marbles".
Edward Beaumont, who lived for some time at the New Bath Hotel,
was very generous when the Church was built. Not only did he contribute
to cost of the fabric and the organ but he also provided the communion
plate. Two vicars, Rev. Pelly and Rev. Barker, jointly paid for
a burnished brass lectern that was installed after alterations
to the Church.
