Sept 22 – Fair Sunday

St. Andrew’s will be taking part in the annual Ancaster Fair Service, a shared worship service organized by several local churches. Worship will be held at 9:30am at the Ancaster Fair Grounds and will be our main Sunday service. Music will be led by the St. Andrew’s Praise Band. Attendance at the service will also get you free admission to the Fall Fair for the day. For directions and more information the great Fall Fair we have here in Ancaster, go to ancasterfair.ca/

For those unable to make it to the Fair Grounds, a second service of worship will also be held at 11:00am in the St. Andrew’s sanctuary.

Sept 25 – Fall Alpha Course

St. Andrew’s is offering the Alpha Course this fall. Alpha will meet on Wednesdays 6:30-8:00pm from September 25 to December 4.  Each week there’s a free meal, a video and discussion. Alpha is a safe, welcoming place to ask life’s big questions and a great way to develop meaningful friendships with people from all backgrounds and perspectives.

If you’re already a part of our church we encourage you to invite your friends, family and neighbours who have questions about life, faith and purpose – Alpha is a great place to explore them. Postcards with information on this fall’s Alpha will be available starting this Sunday September 8.

Jun 16 – Heritage Sunday

In connection with Ancaster Heritage Days, St. Andrew’s will be holding our annual Heritage Sunday service on June 16. We will be celebrating the heritage of our church as we look to the future. The service will conclude with a procession outside to the cemetery where we will remember and give thanks for those who have gone before us.

Please stay for lunch following the service hosted by the St. Andrew’s Cemetery Committee.

Jun 9 – Worship at Alberton Presbyterian Church

St. Andrew’s is taking worship on the road to Alberton this Sunday. We’ve learned that there will be no parking available anywhere in Ancaster Village due to it being the final day of the Canadian Open Golf Tournament.

Alberton Presbyterian Church have graciously offered us the use of their building. Worship and our regular kids programming will be at 11:00am. We are also welcome to join Alberton for their coffee time at 10:30am.

Directions to Alberton Presbyterian (528 Alberton Road, Ancaster)

Take Wilson Street west towards Brantford. Alberton is roughly 3 minutes past the Ancaster Fair Grounds (at Hwy 52/Trinity Road). The church is on the right (north) side of Wilson at the intersection with Alberton Road. If you take Hwy 403 to avoid traffic through Ancaster Village take the exit at Wilson Street W. People parking at the Fair Grounds for the Canadian Open will be exiting at Hwy 52.
