The upstairs gallery window, designed, made and installed by Keith Hynd of Different Glass, depicts Moses beside the burning bush (Exodus chapter 3, verses 1 – 6). Keith included the Glamis Inverarity Kinnettles Kirk signature of three wild geese in the top left corner.
Keith, from Cowdenbeath in Fife, took on the cleaning, restoring and re-seating of our stained glass windows with outside protective covering which also included protection for the plain windows.
The project was part of the plan to redecorate Glamis Kirk, complete re-wiring of the kirk with new lighting, new heaters for the Strathmore Aisle and alterations to the Session House to accommodate a disabled toilet to meet the necessary requirements.
Our kirks now use CH4 (Church Hymnary 4th edition) as part of our worship thanks to Margaret Smith, wife of the late Willie Smith of Roundyhill who was a well known steam enthusiast. Extra copies were also donated by members of the congregation.
Willie also bequeathed a substantial amount to upgrade the old Glamis Kirk organ. No longer will our organist David Rattray, or any other organist for that matter, be concerned with failing bellows and motors. The organ is now electronically powered delivering a very pleasing sound.
New photographs will be appearing very soon to show the recently decorated kirk.
