Unfortunately, we have had to cancel this year’s fundraiser, as our supplier has had an infestation of white flies and could not fulfil our order.
If you have already placed an order, you will be contacted shortly to enquire what you would like to do with the money you have paid.
Reimbursements will be made available, or you can choose to donate your funds to the work and ministry of St. Andrew’s, to the General fund, or the Christmas offering.
As we prepare to enter Advent (Sunday November 28th) this year’s series is entitled ‘Prepare Ye’. Please read the below letter setting out our Advent Series.
Congregational Christmas Letter
It is through prayer and hard work that Session approved the re-opening of in-person worship, commencing Sunday, November 7th, 2021. Below is a congregational letter along with the entry and exit plans and protocols for attending in-person worship. We will be doing a hybrid service – both online and in-person.
We do ask that if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 that you stay home and watch the worship service on-line.

The first National Day of Truth and Reconciliation is ,Thursday, September 30th, 2021.
It is on this day the Church and we as a Denomination chose to reflect on the impact our role, both past and present, with our Indigenous brothers and sisters.
To assist us on the path through Reconciliation to bring about the beginning of healing, the PCC has prepared material to reflect and learn (https://presbyterian.ca/justice/social-action/indigenous-justice/) and also the below video by Vivian Ketchum on Orange Shirt Day.
These materials are not easy to read and/or watch, but we encourage everyone to take time to watch/hear so that the journey of healing can start to begin.
