Stained Glass

Craigiebuckler Parish Church in Aberdeen is fortunate in being the custodian of a unique collection of twelve stained glass windows which were installed between 1961 and 1971.

Nationally important as works of art, these windows by the Scottish artist William Wilson, OBE, RSA, are much admired by the congregation and visitors to the church.

In addition to the Wilson windows in the nave, Craigiebuckler Church has a suite of 3 windows by the leading pre-Raphaelite artist Sir Edward Burne-Jones in the chancel, and 2 stained glass door panels by the contemporary German artist Josepha von Furstenberg.

Craigiebuckler is unique in having William Wilson’s largest complete suite of windows, being a unified scheme depicting both the Old and New Testaments.

Created Light

The church has published a booklet called “Created Light” by Rev Kenneth Petrie and Dr David Sell.

It provides an insight into the history of the church, Wilson’s life and the the stained glass windows at Craigiebuckler.

Copies of the booklet are available now and can be purchased for a nominal fee from the church office.
