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.

This Week at St. Andrew’s


Each Friday we publish a weekly newsletter for the week ahead. Keep up to date with what is happening at St. Andrew’s and for opportunities to join with us in worship and in fellowship.

Session & Ministries


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


In “Faces of Faith” we will be featuring members of our community – old and new – and putting faces to names.  Check in during the upcoming weeks to learn a bit more about those who are the lifeblood of this church and about the varied ways that they contribute.
