Tiffany Windows

We are an active church with many activities taking place during the week, including a very busy daycare center and worship services, concerts, worship rehearsals, weddings, and memorial services.  Therefore, in order to assure that you will be able to witness the beauty and grandeur of our windows, we ask that you follow these simple courtesies:

Pre-scheduled tours are available by calling 716.433.5905 or emailing the pastor at reverendjim1967@hotmail.com.  Group Tours require a minimum of 6 or more people. Donations are gratefully appreciated.  We suggest $5.00 a per person but any donation is greatly appreciated.  Donations are used to support this ministry and for window maintenance. 

Self Guided Tours will begin on May 30, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.   We will continue to have self-guided tour hours until September 1, 2017.  All group tours must be pre-scheduled so that we have a docent available to assist you.  We have limited availability on Saturdays for group tours, so please call at least one week in advance if you are interested in seeing the windows on a Saturday.

 

Tiffany Windows tours take place year round by appointment and during the summer months Monday through Friday from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.  You are welcome to attend our worship services and take a self-guided tour after the worship service has concluded! Worship services take place at 8:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., except in July and August when they take place at 10:00 a.m.

Tiffany Windows

We are fortunate to have six windows that are original Tiffany windows, made by the Tiffany Company, plus six windows made of Tiffany glass. Tiffany used unusual construction techniques and effects that produced stunning results. These included: cutting the glass first, then cutting the leading; use of strong colors; layering colored glass over another colored glass; application of color in streaks or dry-brushing the color on the surface; pulling and pushing glass while it cools to produce a Drapery Glass. These techniques and effects are well represented in the wonderful windows, treasured at First Presbyterian Church.
