Simon Woodward, pastor of Life City Church said: "We do a lot for the community and we're a new church but this is costing us a considerable amount whilst we couldbe spending this money on other things such as our community work.

"We do lots of social action work such as coffee mornings and help feed people, but having to pay for these new windows doesn't help at all."
