A BEAUTIFUL stained glass window was recently completed at a church's newly built coffee shop - and it reflects the church's objective to be 'a light on a hill'. 

The window was designed and placed into the wall of The Bridge Church's coffee shop off Bradford Street.

It was created by local craftsman Andrew Seddon and Richard Cooke, senior leader of The Bridge Church, said it represented the central theme of the church, which is 'a light on a hill' for its community.

Richard Cooke, senior leader of The Bridge Church, said: "The sun is at the centre of the window and you can see the light radiating out.

"It represents our 'light on a hill' theme and how we aim to help our community one person at a time.

"We hired a stained glass window maker in the Bolton area so it is good that we have been able to hire a local business to do this piece.

"You can see on the stained glass window that it is darker at the outer circle and the sun shines through the centre of the window."

The coffee shop is set to open its doors officially on Tuesday, August 22.

Visitors who went to Bolton's Big Day Out at The Bridge were able to get a sneak peak at the coffee shop and its facilities.
