Armley’s Christ Church marks Armistice and D-Day with special event


Christ Church in Upper Armley is hosting a special open day to mark Armistice and D-Day.

The day the church’s remarkable stained glass windows, six of which act as stunning war memorials commemorating the people who died in both World Wars. The main focus will be World Ward One and the history of the church.

Each of these windows has the name of the fallen on them from both World Wars (two more were added after World War Two) with a Saint above the names.

These Saintly windows were a speciality of the maker of the windows Charles Steel of York Place, Leeds and were paid for by public subscription.

Tea and cake will be served between 2pm and 5pm on Saturday, 6 July 2019. All welcome.
