St. Andrew's

I left off yesterday in the sanctuary at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. Here are more of the stained glass windows.


War memorial plaques can be found inside the church- typical of most well established churches in the city, where those who served and died from the congregation or parish will be remembered on plaques like these. This is for the Second World War.


I mentioned yesterday that the sanctuary was organized with the pulpit area on one side. Here we have it.


This lectern out front of the pulpit is a gift from Queen Juliana as thanks to the congregation for their friendship during the Second World War.


More stained glass.


And here we have the memorial plaque for the First World War.


The stained glass in here is quite a wonder to see.

  23. I went to a different church this Sunday and noticed that it only had one stained glass window, the rest were plain glass looking out to the trees outside. I am now now not sure if I prefer plain or stained glass.

  24. I like the old post offices better!
    There are discussions on repurposing churches. People just don't need or want them. It's great to capture the stained glass. Gorgeous.
