OUR STAINED GLASS WINDOWS AND MEMORIALS

The magnificent stained glass windows of MacNab Street Presbyterian church were designed and produced by Edinburgh artists, William Wilson and James Ballantine & Son, who used techniques and decorative conventions found in the finest European cathedrals. The windows depict in rich colours the life of Christ, and are considered the finest example of Scottish stained glass in Canada. The first window was installed in 1935, the eighth and last window in 1971.
