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.
