Mandatory Masks

As Covid-19 cases rise, the elders of St. Andrews are concerned that our times of worship remain safe for all.  Cooler temperatures mean we have needed to start closing windows and doors; we can no longer depend on fresh air flowing through.  As a result, we are now requesting all who worship with us in person on Sundays to wear a mask throughout their time in the building.  While this doing so is uncomfortable, it is a small way we can take care of each other and keep our times together safer.  Thank you for your cooperation.

 

 

Fall Series

 
 

2020 has been filled with uncertainty: wildfires, Covid-19 and economic uncertainty, for a start.  What does God say to us in this?  “Be still, wait on Me.”  Join us as we discover who God is in the midst of the storms through stories from the Old Testament.

St Andrews Reads is back!

Join us in reading The Bees of Rainbow Falls.  Preston Pouteaux writes about how an unlikely journey into beekeeping changed how he saw his neighbors. The Bees of Rainbow Falls reminds us that we matter to our community, that goodness is found all around us, and that new life emerges out of the small and sublime. With the quirky curiosity of a beekeeper and the thoughtful care of a pastor, he gently welcomes readers to step into their own neighbourhoods. What if the very best gift was waiting for you just beyond your front door?  We’ll meet in January to discuss the book.

Books can be ordered through amazon.ca or from a local bookseller.
