The Healing Window

Window of three rounded trefoiled lights, with tracery- which includes one trefoil and two cinquefoils.

This window depicts vignettes of healings which Jesus undertook. Angels are at the peak of each light. In the tracery are more angels set upon a night sky. A Chi-rho is found in the peak tracery.

Bible verses referring to these scenes are found on scrolls beneath each vignette.

This window was installed in 1966.

Gordon Webster (1908-1987) was born in Glasgow, the son of Alf Webster, a renowned Stained Glass Artist and inheritor of Stephen Adam Studio. Alf Webster died in WWI when Gordon was 6 years. The Studio was kept running due to MCM Webster (Alf’s widow) and Douglas Hamilton, Alf Webster’s assistant. Gordon was trained by Douglas Hamilton and took control of the studio in the late 1920s. Alf’s design’s were used to begin with, but by the mid 1930s, Gordon developed his own style which proved to be effective and successful.
