St Elizabeth in stained glass

Here's another beautiful stained glass window from the church of St John the Evangelist, an Episcopal church in Greenock.


The window depicts Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist.


The colours are just beautiful.


The church itself was built by Paley & Austin of Lancaster in Gothic Revival style and was completed in 1878.  It is situated at the corner of Union Street and Jamaica Street in Greenock.  You can see more beautiful stained glass from a previous post.


Joining InSPIRED Sunday - come and have a look at some more churches from around the world.
