St. Andrews by the lake windows
We're having a Celebration of the St. Andrew's By the Lake Stained Glass Window restoration at St. Matthew's Anglican Church, 126 Plains Road East, Burlington on May 26, 2019. St Andrew's was located on the beach for years and closed in 1992. The windows were moved to St. Matthew's at that time. I hoped you might be able to post this celebration on your forum since your members are involved with the beach and this is a part of the beach history.
It’s part of the 10:30 am service. The service lasts for about an hour and then there is coffee afterwards where people get more opportunities to mingle and learn more about the windows and other artifacts we brought here from St. Andrews.
Thanks for your help.
Jane

I did stop by and took a few photos of the glass, I have no idea what kind of shape they were in before reconstruction, but they looked to be in perfect shape.

I have put them together as they were when on display the old Beach church.
I missed the Fletcher family when I stopped by, their family were the original donors of the windows back in 1933, notice the inscription at the bottom of each window.
"TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN LOVING MEMORY OF ROBERT FLETCHER AND HIS WIFE HELEN, ERECTED BY THEIR FAMILY 1933"
Many thanks to Jane and Jim at the St. Matthew's Anglican Church, 126 Plains Road East, Burlington

There doesn't seem to be many photos circulating around showing the inside of St. Andrew's, these two are from the 1939 Mitchell wedding, the front shot shows one window but it isn't the three we have in the above post.

These three would of been located behind the alter at the back of the church, the second photo shows the location but it is of poor quality.
