Places of worship aren’t always filled with ancient stained glass, far from it, there are plenty of modern examples out there to be found. These windows are created using modern techniques, still containing meaning and story, but with acknowledgement to what has gone before.

These pair of windows in Malvern Priory are called the Millennium windows and celebrate the start of the third Christian millennium. They were created by Thomas Denny in 2004 and their design was inspired by Psalm 36.

I love the space these windows create, tucked into a corner, against a more traditional window. Their colours are bright and vibrant and in the afternoon bathe the area in fantastic patterns. The windows seem more accessible, more touchable, more believable. Instead of being one of those big windows, viewed from afar, you can actually touch them! It somehow makes them seem like they are more real.
