History - Stained Glass Windows

The history, and origins of the Church windows illustrate the personal and communal values of past congregations.

Rebecca Shaw Armstrong

RS Armstrong  window locatonThis window was gifted by the late David Armstrong in memory of his wife Rebecca Shaw Armstrong.

The window was unveiled by Mr David Armstrong and dedicated by the Rev. George R. Fiddes on the 15th October 1989. Many of the Armstrong family were able to be present to the delight of Mr. Armstrong.

The window is comparatively plain which is very suitable for a stained-glass window in a north wall. At the top is the emblem of the Women's Guild which is befitting as Mrs Armstrong was a very active member of the guild for many years. Below the guild emblem is the quotation "Blessed are the meek".

The artist has a central figure of a lady and as far as is known does not represent anyone in particular.

At the bottom of the window is the inscription :-

Erected to the Glory of God and in memory of Rebecca Shaw Armstrong by her husband David Armstrong

Both Mr. and Mrs. Armstrong are remembered by many in the church - Mrs. Armstrong for her long service in the Women's Guild and Mr Armstrong as an Elder and his service on many of the church committees.
