The only stained glass in the church is the east window, made by William Wailes of Newcastle and dating from 1864. It is dedicated to the Rev H Jubb's parents.

A description of the window at the reopening of the church in November 1864 is provided by the Stamford Mercury:

'The east window of three lights is a memorial one. In the centre is the crucifixion. In the north panel is another figure surmounted with a scroll on which is inscribed, "Woman behold thy son." In the south is another figure, above the head of which is a scroll, with the words, "Behold thy mother." Beneath the whole is the following inscription: "To the Glory of God, in memory of John Jubb, of St. Petersburg, obit A.D. 1857, and of Harriet, his wife, obit A.D. 1835.—R.I.P.—Nov., 1864.” The window is a beautiful one by Wailes, of Newcastle.'
