Inverarity Window

Inverarity Stained Glass Window

Picture Of The Inverarity WindowThe window, installed in 1997, was created by the artist Aileen Ogilvie and based on an original picture by Barbara Robertson. 

In Pictish Celtic times the wild goose was a symbol of war. St. Columba, of Iona, is thought to have applied the symbol as a representation of The Holy Spirit.

However, we take the three “Wild Geese” in flight as a symbol of our three churches, which were unioned, joined together into one parish, in 1996.

Geese in flight constantly change “leaders”. As one tires, another takes over and so on. No goose stays up front “leading” all the time they are flying.

Our churches have an activity at one church, then, it becomes the turn of another church, much like wild geese changing places at the front of the formation.
