New Church Window

Window by Bob Jones

view from the pew













Over the last few months one of our group has been working well on a very special piece. Bob Jones is a member of the Waterloo United Free Church which is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Bob has constructed a window incorporating two Christian symbols which shape the figure 100. This imaginative piece of stained glass work is now in place in their place of worship. Members of the congregation have been high in praise of Bob’s work and are encouraging him to extend his work and create an even bigger window.
Bob is a good example of the talent that is being exhibited by our group the members of which are engaged on many pieces of challenging and tasteful designs. The vibrant colours of glass are enriching their homes.
