Richard Whincop's painting of the baptism of Christ was dedicated at the 10am service on Sunday 8 July; if you have not seen it or had the time to study it in detail then please take the time to do so. To help you Richard has prepared some notes on his inspiration for the painting and the symbolism incorporated; these notes are available in St Mary's and also on the church web site here. Richard has previously created a tryptich on a Baptismal theme for St Bride's Church in Bothwell, Lanarkshire - click on this link to see the paintings.
