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. And, each and every day, many people find a moment to come into the sanctuary at St. Andrew’s to pray, to contemplate, to collect their thoughts and to seek peace.

The church doors are usually open from about 8:30 am until about 5:00 pm. If you are passing by, feel free to come in to offer a prayer and to sit quietly in a place of peace. One does not need to be a member of the St. Andrew’s community to come into the sanctuary.

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.

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.
