Description

These interior photographs of Wesley Church show some of the stained glass windows. The window featuring a warrior in full armour and wearing a crown is particularly inspired by the medieval era. The warrior, St George, carries a sword and shield with a cross motif, and the head of a dead dragon lies at his feet. Below them is a castle featuring crenellation. The window is a memorial for someone killed in action in France during World War I, which makes the depiction of a warrior saint an appropriate image. Wesley Church in the central Perth CBD was designed in the Gothic style by Richard Roach Jewell for the local Methodist congregation and it opened in 1870.
