Victor Stewart of Stewart Stained Glass, North Loburn, carefully installs the $12,000 replacement for a stained glass window smashed by thieves at St Mary's Anglican church in Timaru nearly two years ago.

The church was desecrated in January last year when communion vessels and wafers were stolen after thieves broke in through the window. 

St Mary's restoration trust chairman Ray Bennett discovered the mess. 

Yesterday, he said it had been a considerable wait for insurance approval. 

''We've been pushing for it for a long time.''

The window that was smashed was made in London in 1913.
