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"[1].

Mr. 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[1].
