Welcome to Daniel Hoogsteen, our new Faith Formation Coordinator.  Daniels comes from a long line of Presbyterian Ministers and was raised in the church.  He spent five years involved in camping ministry at Camp Kintail on the shores of Lake Huron, including facilitating the Leader in Training program.

He is currently working on his Master at the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto.  Daniel has also volunteered with the Better English Café in the past and he looks forward to more involvement in the future.  He is excited to jump into this new position and is excited to meet the children, parents and the rest of the congregation.  Please welcome him on Sunday, August 13th when he will join us at Coffee Hour.

Sunday Adult Bible Study  
Bible Study has now resumed and will meet in the Boardroom at 9am.  We have now begun our study of the book of Exodus.  Stories of the Exodus help us to discover how the covenant relationship between God and people echoes throughout the whole bible.  Learn about the important events, people and foundation of our faith. The cost for the course materials will be $40.00

We will continue with our hybrid format so if you would like to join us via Zoom please email Marcela Villalobos in the Church Office at mvillalobos@standrewstoronto.org by Fridays at 2pm so that she can send out the weekly link.  Childcare will be made available for those attending Bible Study but we do ask that you notify us ahead of time.




Nursery Update for Fall 2023 

The Nursery is now available in Room 206 for children up to 2 years of age.  Parents and/or guardians may take the children directly to the Nursery before worship begins and collect them from the same location afterwards.  Our Nursery Coordinator is Kate Ingram.


Church School Update for Fall 2023 
Church School is now in session for children 3 and above.  The children should stay in the Sanctuary at the start of worship but will leave once children’s time is announced.  On Communion Sundays the children will return to the Sanctuary to participate, otherwise parents or guardians may pick them up from Church School on the second floor (Room 207) after worship.

For further information, please contact Daniel Hoogsteen, our Faith Formation Coordinator at dhoogsteen@standrewstoronto.org
