Sites and Monument Record: Westpark Church (SMR 1124) -stained glass

1968 Windows in memory of Rev Dugald McTaggart, minister 1946-67. “The design of the windows suggests a rectilinear rhythm, in keeping with the existing windows, with strong horizontals through the three window lights to counteract the shadow cast by a roof top. Since the windows are directly behind the pulpit the general colour is medium in strength, accented by small areas of stronger colour. Since there is no direct light, deep colour would become heavy and dull.
The symbols in the design are: The Burning Bush – emblem of the Church of Scotland; the Lamp – signifying faith and guidance; stars with the Greek letters Alpha and Omega – signifying the Mysteries of the Universe created by God; the Oak Leaves – signifying strength.”
A brass plaque reads “The windows above the pulpit are dedicated to the Gory of God and in memory of DUGALD W McTAGGART BA BD, Minister of Denny-West Church from 18th June 1946 to 1st October 1963 and of the United congregations of Westpark Church from 1st October 1963 till his death on 24th July 1967.”
