Renfield St. Stephens, Glasgow

I was commissioned to draw a section throught the sanctuary at Renfield St. Stephens Church, on Bath Street, in Glasgow. The Church was originally completed in 1852, designed by noted London architect, John T Emmett, who specialised in the English Gothic Revival style. The Section Drawing captures the┬ástained-glass window behind the chancel, designed by Norman McLeod in 1905, commissioned by the congregation in memory of James Baird. Baird bought the church premises in 1875 and gifted it to the Church of Scotland. The window incorporates the text ‘Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give thee rest’ (Matthew 11:28).
