This week in worship
The Gospel points us to a deep reality of Divine Spirit, love, and creativity. At St. Andrew’s we honour other traditions that also point to this deep reality. Recently, Russ was very surprised to discover a MIT management professor who’s writings may also be pointing in that direction. Could it be that the church is about to find wholly unexpected new partners in the mission of serving God’s ‘emerging future?’
Worship at St. Andrew’s is creative, often surprising, with dynamic reflections and excellent music. Come early so we can get to know one another and extend welcome to the St. Andrew’s Community!
Coffee and treats are available at the back of the church before and during the service. The atmosphere is very informal, and we hope welcoming. Many people enjoy catching up on the past week wit hone another in this time before church begins. There is an open space with activities provided for kids and families so everyone can enjoy time in church together.
After welcome and sharing information about the upcoming activities, we begin worship with a period of Meditation with Music. Our Minister of Music, Kevin Parks, improvises on themes that reflect the main idea of worship for the day. We sing, pray, listen and contemplate together.

Our music is as diverse as those who attend worship on Sundays. We sing traditional and contemporary hymns and songs, we have an excellent choir and make use of an impressive organ. We also have many individual music talents in our midst who form a band to offer music from the wider culture. It is not unusual to hear Leonard Cohen, Cockburn, Springsteen, Mary Chapin Carpenter or even Bowie or Prince as part of our worship.
