Postponed until further notice.  

St. Andrew’s hosts a food bank depot every Monday from 2:00 -3:00 pm. 

Clients can register in person during the depot time. For more information, visit the Loaves & Fishes website.


Note: Unfortunately, we are not able to give out food vouchers at other times during the week. We do invite people to join us on Thursdays at our Community Lunch which is available from September to June.

Presbyterian Women’s Association (PWA)

The women of our congregation meet on the first Tuesday morning of each month from September to June for fellowship and to plan fundraising and special events.  Our meetings begin with devotions and conclude with a potluck lunch.  Please join us.
Our group hosts a number of amazing events throughout the year. Some of these include:  
  • Pancake lunch on Shrove Tuesday
  • Spring tea with crafts, preserves and bake sale
  • Annual garage sale
  • Fall/Christmas sale with crafts, preserves and home baking
  • Advent worship service, written and led by members of our group
As well, we have held two fashion shows, an antique/estate sale with appraisers on site and, on occasion, we have catered dinners for outside groups (these require special consideration and arrangements).  
In addition to the above activities, it is a privilege and an honour for us to provide receptions for grieving families following a memorial service held in the church.  

The PWA is an active and growing group of over 20 women who enjoy fellowship together.  We are grateful to God for our opportunities to serve St. Andrew’s Nanaimo.
