Closing Prayer & Blessing


    • Sunday Worship will continue to be online or telephone only for the foreseeable future. The Reopening Taskforce will meet again whenever lockdown measures are lifted in Hamilton and assess the situation at that time. Please pray for the citizens of Ontario to do what’s needed to bring infection rates back under control, and for the vaccination efforts that are now underway.
    • Thank You For Your Support of St. Andrew’s in 2020! Your generous support during a difficult year and the help of government grants helped St. Andrew’s finish 2020 with a small budget surplus. The Session and Board of Managers will be providing more detailed year end information in the coming weeks, as well as an update on our plans for the 2021 Annual Meeting (in light of the ongoing public health situation). Thank you also to those who have given towards the new heating and ventilation system for the gym. So far, we have raised over $28,000 of our $30,000 goal!
    • Thank You For Your Support of Presbyterians Sharing! The Mission Team would also like to thank you for helping us reach our goal of $14,500. Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing support the mission work of the Presbyterian Church in Canada and around the world.
    • Preauthorized and Online Giving: The start of a New Year is a great time to consider joining our Preauthorized deposit program (also known as PAR). It’s going to be a while before we’re back worshipping in person, and PAR makes giving safe and easy. You can email our Giving Secretary Diane Robb at dianemrobb@gmail.com for more information. If you would rather give on an one-time or occasional basis online you can go to standrews.ws/give/
