While our worship services provide the core of our parish life, St. Andrew’s offers other opportunities to worship and bring our strengths into the world. We are a group that loves to celebrate and we find many ways and reasons to celebrate our lives in Christ. Birthdays, anniversaries and travel are celebrated during and after services, as are other transitions, such as enlistments, graduations and retirements. We celebrate through sharing meals together, whether for a meeting, special occasion, or informal after-work fellowship. We treasure our fellowship before the service and at coffee hour after service, catching up with old friends, and welcoming new friends to St. Andrew’s.
Regular activities also include
Annual Share the Love Concert fundraiser for CHUM. Dessert and coffee are served with musical entertainment featuring two of the most well-known musicians in the region who play to a packed crowd.
Lenten soup suppers and activities. We have additional opportunities throughout Lent to learn and share. Themes have varied from studying books or persons in the Bible, to group readings, to practicing “laughing yoga”.
