east window

The east window of the chancel portrays Christ in Glory surrounded by saints and Old Testament prophets, including Moses, King David, St Peter and St Paul.

The window is dedicated to a former rector of Screveton, the Rev G. C. Hodgkinson, who was instituted on 8 January 1879 but died the following year on 25 April aged 64. The inscription reads:

To the Glory of God and to the beloved memory of George Christopher Hodgkinson M.A. Trin. Coll. Camb. sometime Rector of Screveton his children dedicate this window 1884

In the south wall of the chancel there are two 19th-century stained glass windows.

Virgin Mary St Wilfrid

The more westerly one is an image of the Virgin Mary with the baby Jesus and bears the dedication:

To the Glory of God
and in memory
of Alice Jane Bury

The more easterly one is an image of St. Wilfrid and bears the inscription:

In Memory of
William Edward Bury
Rector 1880-1918

South Aisle

In the east wall of the south aisle there is a 19th century stained glass window, probably by Burlison & Grylls, in memory of the Rev G. C. Hodgkinson's fourth daughter, Florence Emily, who died on 14 April 1896. The inscription reads:

To the glory of God and in memory of
Florence Emily Hodgkinson 1896

There is no stained glass in the north aisle.
