Night of the Nativities &
the Calling of the Carols
Tuesday December 12th 2023
Doors Open 6pm; event begins at 6:50
Christmas time, and the events leading up to Christmas, are not always filled with joy and ho, ho, ho. Often we carry hurts in our hearts from the year or years that have come before. Sometimes we carry grief and we long for a quiet Christmas to rest in our sadness until we can move through to the other side. We don't need to journey alone, we can journey together with compassion and caring with and for each other.
On Tuesday December 12th, there will be a special event held at St. Andrew's. This is a joint initiative of the clergy of St. Andrew's, Lemonville, Claremont, Goodwood, and Mount Zion United Churches. The clergy involved are Rev. Sandra Farrow, Rev. Karen Smart, and Rev. Nan.
We invite you to join us.
Whoever you are,
Wherever you are from,
Whatever you doubt or believe,
YOU ARE WELCOME HERE.
New to St.Andrew's?
What do I wear?
You are welcome to wear whatever you are comfortable in.
We wear shorts, suits, yoga pants, dresses, jeans and sweat pants.
What about my children?
We love children at St. Andrew's. Children are always welcome.
Presently, in-person Children's Church is held every 2nd and 4th Sundays only.
Children may begin the service in the sanctuary and will later proceed to Children's Church located in the Friendship Room, on the lower level.
We also invite children to join us on Zoom on the other Sundays when our services include a "Time for All Ages." This time is used especially to allow your child(ren) to continue being a part of Sunday Worship.
How long are your services?
Our services are approximately an hour long.
Online, join us for coffee chat from 9:30 - 9:55 a.m and also for a few minutes after the service.
In person, please join us after the service for coffee time in the Upper Hall.
What if I am not sure what I believe?
We gather around the stories of Jesus. Questions and doubts about how we live out these stories are not the opposite of faith, they are what keep our faith and our church authentic.
Where do I sit?
You are free to sit wherever you want. Wherever you choose to sit, you most likely will find yourself seated next to a friendly face.
I am looking for a church that is inclusive of all people. What is your stance on the LGBTQ community?
We embrace all of God's people, including people who identify as 2SLGBTQIA+. We are in the very early stages of becoming an Affirming Ministry and will update our website with our progress.
