Welcome to St. James Anglican Church, A place for Worship, Caring, Learning and Fun.

And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day  approaching  

Hebrews 10:24-25 (NRSV)



Stained glass windows have been used for a thousand years.  Pieces of coloured glass of different colours are joined together with strips of lead so as to make a picture, usually of a Bible scene or Biblical character or a Saint.  The light shines through the coloured glass and creates a beautiful effect inside the church.  In an age when many people could not read, these windows were used to tell the stories of the bible, as well as to beautify the cathedrals and churches.  Saint James Anglican Church, Kentville has a wonderful heritage in its beautiful, richly coloured windows.  All of the windows in the chancel were crafted Czechoslovakia and had been in toehold church.  Most of the remaining windows were the work of Robert McCausland Ltd., Toronto.   This firm has been in business since 1856 and still advertise in the "Anglican Journal".  How many of us take the time to admire these windows, to read the stories they tell and to think of the years of service and devotion of the people for who they have been given as a Memorial.  We have included the stained glass windows in our web page along with a map of where they they are located.  We hope you enjoy your tour of the beautiful windows of Saint James Anglican Church.   At this time we would like to thank Adell E. Horton for research and William M. Horton for the pictures of the windows and Ann Louise Horton Longley who did the computer work in the book of stained glass windows on display at the back of the church; all of which were used in creating this web page.
