History of KYOTO St. Andrews Church

The story behind the 300-year-old English stained glass

Sheffield, a city in the northern part of England, was well known for being a city of blacksmiths and silver and bronze-plating since the Industrial Revolution. Also around the time of the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century, St. Andrew’s Church was built in the city center for worship. However, following the decline of manufacturing industries and populations, St. Andrew’s Church eventually met its fateful end and was demolished. Within the church, there was about 10 frames of stained glass windows that depict the story in the bible – from the birth of Christ to the Last Supper.

At present, the traditional craft of stained glass-making is being endangered. As technology advances, hand-blown glass production becomes rare.

Thus, members of St. Andrew’s Church wanted to preserve the beautiful hand-made stained glasses. Right now, those very same stained glasses are being kept and displayed at Kyoto, 9000km away from their origins.

And the stained glasses continue to watch over marrying couples in Kyoto’s St. Andrew’s Church today.
