1904: Additions (Pryce-Lewis list 12 110)

Three new stained-glass windows were installed in August 2023. They were added to honour the church’s organist of the past 50 years, Adv. Deon Irish, who has played the organ there since 1973. The windows were designed and installed by Ms Anika van der Merwe. They depict Saint Cecilia, Saint Nicholas and Saint Gregory – who all had connections to music.
