To the congregation of St. Andrew’s: I would like to thank the many members of St. Andrew’s for their appreciation of the staff of St. Andrew’s and the work they do. I have enjoyed 14 and a half years of working in this incredible church and will miss many things about working in the office here. I have worked with many incredible people whose commitment and passion create the heart of this church and I will miss you.  I will be returning to full time employment in my husbands company which was what I was doing prior to coming to St. Andrew’s , I wish all of you the best in the future. Sincerely, Shelley Wiens.

 Please don’t forget to save your used postage stamps, especially unusual Canadian designs or from other countries. Leave an inch or two of paper around each one and bring them in to the church office. Members of our Office Volunteer Ministry will trim them carefully and send them off to support the work of the Leprosy Mission of Canada. Just another of St. Andrew’s missions that go on all year long.

St. Andrew's is closed on Fridays; however, the facilities are available upon request, such as room rentals, special events and funerals.  Please contact the office at (519) 578-4430.

If you are calling the office on Fridays, please feel free to leave a message on the person's voice mail whom you are calling and they will get back to you as soon as possible.

Looking for the perfect gift for the person who has everything? Why not give the gift of a donation in their honour to your favourite St. Andrew’s Mission. For those who watch us on television for a birthday or anniversary you can make a donation to the TV ministry of St. Andrew’s in their name. A donation to C.E. or Youth, the bulletin, the library, Stephen Ministry, VIP, or a donation to support our church buildings all show your love of our church being shared with loved ones and friends. Cards are available from the office to send to the recipients to let them know of your generous and thoughtful gift.
