The Forrest

Window of three rounded trefoiled lancets with tracery.

This window depicts an abstract design of six trees. The colour palate is one of grays, black and a range of reds.

A plaque beneath the window states: “To the Glory of God in fond memory of Sheila Turner (1937-1984) By friends of this congregation and beyond. ‘And from the ground there blossoms red life that shall endless be.’ ”

(This quote found in the dedication was taken from a hymn entitled “O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go”. It was written by George Ma­the­son, and first appeared in the Church of Scotland maga­zine “Life and Work”, in Jan­u­a­ry 1882.)

Susan Laidler: (1960-__) This window was installed in 1986.
