Description (exterior)

The church or chapel is a small internal room within the 1970s Ninewells Hospital, located towards the western end of Dundee.


Description (interior)

The room is painted with pink emulsion and has a green carpet, two windows, each with two lights, and a false ceiling. The furniture includes an altar, pulpit, piano and separate chairs. There is a wooden cross on the south wall, the design of which matches the chair backs. Both the pulpit and altar are covered with panels of silk embroidery. The tapestry on the east wall was presented, in 1998, by the Woman's Guilds of Dundee Presbyterial Council. Called 'Faith in the Arts' it is an amalgamation of scenes from the natural world and spirituality. Below the tapestry is a handrail that spans half the length of the room. K. Nichols
