A Mill Hill church is celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year with the commissioning of two new stained glass windows.

St Pauls Church, in The Ridgeway, has asked John Reyntiens to design the new windows.

Mr Reyntiens is best known as the designer of the Diamond Jubilee window in Westminster Hall in the Houses of Parliament.

The windows he is creating for the Mill Hill church, which was built by William Wilberforce, are entitled Celebration and Freedom.

As part of Celebration there is an opportunity for people long associated with the church to have their names engraved on the design.

Freedom highlights the church’s links with Wilberforce and draws attention to his battle to abolish slavery.

The church was built in 1833 but the windows, which are costing £39,000, will be contemporary.

More than £31,000 towards the project has already been raised through donations and fundraising events.

To donate call the parish office on 020 8906 3793 or visit the website www.stpaulschurchmillhill.co.uk
