- Public Health Update: St. Andrew’s will continue to worship online and by telephone only for at least the duration of the current provincial ‘Stay At Home Order,’ which took effect on April 8 and be in effect for at least 28 days (to May 5). Session will review the public health situation and the public health guidelines for the City of Hamilton that will come into effect at that time, before deciding on when to reactivate our Reopening Taskforce. We pray for the safety of all during this time of rising infections and the more severe illness arising from the newer COVID variants. But we also give thanks for the vaccination campaign and all hope for better days ahead.

If you or someone you know in congregation would like some assistance with booking your vaccination or getting to your vaccination appointment please contact me by email or phone (905-407-9262).
