Welcome to St. Andrews!

We are an international, ecumenical congregation.  We come from many places, speak many languages and are united in Christ’s name.

We worship together each week in English.

The baptismal font is in the center of our worship space, as a reminder that we are called together as the body of Christ, united in baptism to be the family of God. 

Children are welcome in worship.  Whenever possible, we invite children to assist in parts of the worship service. 

We celebrate communion weekly, all, including children, are welcome to Christ’s table.

Don’t worry about what to wear–we are a “come as you are” kind of place.

Don’t worry about what to say–everything is printed out and you can participate as you feel comfortable.  Our liturgy (literally–the work of the people) and music reflect the ecumenical nature of our congregation, with music led by organ, piano, guitar, or sung a capella.

Come, as you are, whoever you are, and where ever you come from. 

You are invited and welcomed here.

St. Andrews Church at dusk

Creator of doors and homes, bless this spiritual home, our church building, our caravans, our offices, the guild hall and our grounds in this season and every season.  Bless all who come and go through these doors — those who are members here, those who are visiting, and especially those who are refugees, asylum seekers, migrants, those who seek a safe place those who seek home.  May all who enter through these doors come in peace and bring joy.  May all who come to these doors find welcome and love.  May all who exit these doors share hospitality and hope.  May the love and joy in this place overflow and spread into the community and offer comfort to the world.  Amen. 

From the St. Andrew’s door blessing (used often when members our leaving us for new places.)
