The Flower Committee organizes our weekly flower tributes and decorates the Sanctuary for seasonal events throughout the year.
The Music Ministry is an important part of our weekly worship. Music is one of God's great gifts. The purpose of music and singing is to rejoice in and worship the Lord (Psalm 95:1-2). If you enjoy singing, please consider joining our choir. New members are always welcome.
The Prayer Group meets Sunday mornings from 9:45 to 10:15 a.m. before the Service begins.
The Sunshine Guild meets to share in fun and fellowship and organize fundraising events that target the needs and challenges of our church family and the local community. We are GENDER NEUTRAL and welcome all volunteers. Here are some examples of just a few of the activities that we organize:
The Youth Group (ages 13-17) participates in special events throughout the year such as the 30 Hour Famine effort for World Vision, yard sales, singalongs, bazaars and St. Andrew's Footprints of Christmas. You do NOT have to be a church member to come out for fellowship and fun! This is an excellent way to meet new people and make a difference.
Bible Study is a time of friendly fellowship where we together explore God’s Word. Our aim is to learn how the Bible applies to our everyday lives as we study together. You do NOT have to be a church member to participate. Please feel free to join us. We meet on Thursdays at 10 am in the Heather Room. Check our Upcoming Events for session dates.
Christian Education, or what we refer to as Sunday School, is an opportunity for our children and youth to learn what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ: prayers, Bible stories, service to the world, God’s presence in their lives, and the teachings of Jesus. Classes are provided for children from kindergarten to high school. Children attend the first part of regular Sunday worship, at which time they are offered a "Children's Sermon" by the minister. Following this, they proceed from the church sanctuary to their classrooms.
Nursery care is available in our well-equipped nursery on the main floor during the 10:30 service. Supervision is provided by volunteers.
The Compass is a registered charity that was formed in 2002 by ten partnering Christian churches in the Port Credit-Clarkson-Lorne Park area to provide outreach services in Mississauga South. It is both a food bank and a support centre. St. Andrew's contributes goods to its food bank and our members volunteer their time to help out.
Evangel Hall is a community agency that helps homeless and impoverished people to find food, clothing and shelter. It was founded in 1913 by the Presbyterian Church in Canada to provide settlement services and a vibrant faith community for the many immigrants in the Queen and Bathurst neighbourhood of Toronto. Recognizing other needs in the area, it soon began to offer a drop-in centre and soup kitchen. The Mission Committee of St. Andrew's supports the Evangel Hall Mission by organizing a delivery the second Thursday of each month. Packaged cookies, fruit, clothing, blankets, sleeping bags, can be dropped off at the Stavebank entrance 8:30-9:15 a.m.
Presbyterian Sharing is the national church fund that supports the mission and ministries we do together in Canada and around the world -- ministries such as helping congregations to grow, supporting a variety of groups in need within Canada, and sending mission personnel to work with international partners.
