This window commemorates the life and work of Dr. James Jefferis, the first minister of the church, who served from 1859 to 1877 and again from 1895 to 1901. He was born at Bristol in 1833 and died at Encounter Bay on Christmas Day 1917. The verse on the left pane of the window is from 2 Corinthians 3:17; “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”. The motto on the right pane is from Augustine’s Confessions, “Cor nostrum inquietum est donec requiescat in Te”. It translates: Our hearts are restless until they rest in you”.
