This Sunday, March 22
Psalms of Trust Psalm 23 is one of the best known chapters of the Bible, and has given comfort to billions of Jews and Christians for more than 2000 years. This Sunday we will explore its deep message and discover that some very contemporary leaders (including some surprising ones) are producing their own ‘psalms of trust’ in the midst of the Covid 19 outbreak. We’ll have have a short sermon, some hymns, an offering from a Mostly Righteous Basement Band, and a spiritual practice.
We will be live on Facebook and YouTube at 10:30 am. Visit our website for the link – it will be the first one below the banner image… www.standrewshfx.ca

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 with one 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. You can hear sermon reflections by our lead Minister Russ Daye and Associate Minister Susan Chisholm by clicking HERE. to listen to sermon/reflections. There’s much excitement these days as over the summer of 2018 we replaced the sanctuary floor and acquired comfortable flexible seating. The space is now very open and bright and adaptable to so many potential set up designs.
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. Click HERE to learn about music in worship.
