Stained glass window erected by parishioners in memory of Frank Senior, Churchwarden and Trustee of the parish who died in 1895. 

St Lukes was dedicated as Christ Church until 1960. 

UNVEILING OF A MEMORIAL WINDOW. On Wednesday afternoon a large gathering assembled at Christ Church, Enmore to witness the unveiling of a stained glass window erected by the parishioners and other friends of the late Mr Frank Senior J. P. The Rev. Mr Hough delivered an address dwelling upon the labours of the late Mr Senior in the interest of church work. During Mr Hough's incumbency of St James' Church, Sydney, Mr Senior filled the position of churchwarden for 10 years in succession, during which time he devoted much attention to the interest of the congregation, by whom he was much respected. In Christ Church, Enmore where he spent the later days of life in the interest of the Church, he lost none of his former energy.  Mr Hough unveiled the window, after which a hymn was sung and the benediction pronounced. The window which was designed and the work executed by Messrs. Lyon, Wells, Cottier and Co., is erected over the communion table. The subject is the Crucifixion of our Lord, with Mary and John and the Magdalene at the foot of the cross, with lamenting angels hovering above. Below the picture is a medallion with the sacred monogram entwined on a floriated jewelled cross. Over the subject is a canopy in the decorated Gothic style.
