Stained-Glass Windows of the Soul – Art and Colour connects us with history

Guided tours of the century-old Church of All Souls, St Peters, designed by Alfred Wells. The brilliantly coloured stained-glass memorial windows from the Morris & Co. factory connect us with those who gave their lives for our country and with the people who chose the memorials.

Listen to the story of the beautiful Byzantine-inspired church and marvel at the colours and designs of 15 magnificent stained-glass windows. Following the First World War, people made emotional and financial investments to ensure that memorials to their loved ones would be honoured long after their lives had ended. Tour guides will explain the imagery of the windows and reveal the unique details that make All Souls’ stained-glass windows an enduring memory. Designs by world renowned artists Edward Burne-Jones and John Derle from Morris & Co. are a special feature of this tour.

William Bustard of Brisbane company RS Exton & Co. designed seven transept windows in memory of local family members. South Australian creations by Edward Brooks, Montgomery and Grimbly, and Edward Tute complete the collection with windows relocated in 1982 from St Paul’s Church in Pulteney Street to All Souls’ Church, providing a breathtaking exhibition of glass artistry dating from 1863 to 1909.
