Welcome to St. Andrew’s

 

Thank you for checking out St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Whitby, Ontario, Canada.  We’re a community of people who love people: we meet regularly to worship God, to study God’s word, to fellowship together and to care for one another, and reach out to our neighbours across the road and around the world.  We seek to serve our Lord Jesus Christ.  We welcome you to come and spend Sunday morning with us and experience the warmth and friendliness of a Christ-centered community.

Call or email us to find out more about the ministries of St. Andrew’s.  Even though we may not have met you yet we do care about you.

God bless!

Food Bank Donations Urgently Needed

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic crisis, we are seeing a significant increase in demand for food from new and repeat visitors to St. Andrew’s Community Outreach Food Bank. We will now be assisting our visitors every Friday(by appt.)  Without additional sources of food and funding however, we will not be able to respond meaningfully to this crisis. We would therefore be pleased to receive donations of non-perishable foods or cash to our food bank. Charitable receipts will be provided for cash donations of any amount. Donations may be dropped off at the north door (back door) of the church between Monday and Friday, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The church office phone number is 905 668-4022.

Please go to the pull-down menu at the top of this page entitled:  COVID-19 Resources.  Here you will find additional information, support and spiritual encouragement as we meet the challenges of the pandemic.
