Burrswood was founded in 1948 by the 20th century healing visionary, Dorothy Kerin (1890 - 1963), regarded by many as a modern day Christian saint.
The church was built in 1959 under the direct supervision of Burrswood's founder Dorothy Kerin and is the culmination of her life and mission.
Here are two interior views of the church, the first looking east towards the sanctuary and the second looking west.
Here is the font with its very ornate lid.
The stained glass is a particular feature of the building. Here are the windows in the ecclesiastical south wall, they were given in loving memory of Hilda Higham who died on 29th January 1961. They depict the angelic saints of St Michael, St Gabriel, St Uriel and St Raphael. The photographs have been corrected for perspective distortion.
The gallery is not open to the public, so here is the best photograph I could manage of the west windows.
At the west end of the north wall is this window depicting Jesus healing the girl.
The final window is in the chapel to the side of the church, and to my eye is the most beautiful.
Burrswood Hospital has its own website, here.
There is a picture of Burrswood in my Postcard Album.
