"The pulpit, a small raised platform from which the sermon is preached, was given in 1893 and is made from carved Caen stone. It replaced an older pulpit which had originally stood on the opposite side of the chancel, near the door which now leads into the vestry.The colour of the cloth hanging from the book-rest shows the season of the Church year:-

White signifies joy and is used during special festivals such as Easter and Christmas.

Red represents fire and is used at Pentecost (Whitsun) to remind us that the Holy Spirit came down to disciples "like tongues of fire". It also represents the blood of those who died for their faith and is used on Saints’ days.

Purple signifies sorrow and is used during Advent (before Christmas)and Lent (before Easter).

Green is the colour of nature and is used for the remainder of the year."
