Welcome to St. Andrew’s Church
Join us every Sunday at 10:30am for Morning Worship

 

Downtown Toronto is a busy and bustling place. Every day, thousands of people stream past the doors of St. Andrew’s on their way to work, to the theatre, to their homes, to sports games, and to the many tourist sites located in the church’s neighbourhood.

Behind the large doors which open onto King St. is a quiet and peaceful place of prayer and of worship.   The doors to the sanctuary will be open Monday to Friday from  9 AM to 4 PM for people to find a moment to come in to pray, to contemplate, to collect their thoughts and to seek peace.

God calls on St. Andrew’s to be an inclusive community and to welcome all with open arms and hearts of love.

St. Andrew’s Church is a place of prayer for all people.

May 26, 2024 – Trinity Sunday

**********************************************

On Saturday May 11, 2024 family, friends and many people, who were involved in the Biafran Airlift during the Nigerian Civil War, gathered within St. Andrew’s Church to dedicate a Memorial to four Canadians who died when their plane carrying food and medicine crashed on August 2, 1969.   The Memorial plaque also honours all ground and air crews who worked for Canairelief and Joint Church Aid.  Their work resulted in the largest non-governmental humanitarian airlift in history.

The elders of the congregation serve together on the Session. The Session is responsible for the oversight of all of the ministries of the congregation.
Each of these six ministry areas is coordinated by a convener and an associate convener, who work with committees, task forces, activity groups and individuals within the respective areas of concern.

Faces of Faith
